Allan McGregor's agent has confirmed that the Scotland goalkeeper is closing in a switch to Premier League newcomers Hull City.
The 31-year-old currently plies his trade for Besiktas after joined them on a free transfer from Rangers last summer.
However, he has failed to settle into life in Turkey and is seeking a return home with Tigers' boss Steve Bruce keen on landing the shot-stopper.
McGregor's agent Dave Baldwin confirmed: "Negotiations with Allan are progressing well and there are no major obstacles to a deal being done.
"Allan is keen to play in the Premier League and very keen to play under Steve Bruce, so now we just have to push the talks forward."
