Transfer news: Sunderland striker Danny Graham on verge of joining Hull City
The striker only joined the Black Cats from Swansea in January
Wednesday 17 July 2013
Sunderland striker Danny Graham is close to joining Hull on a season-long loan, Press Association Sport understands.
The 27-year-old flew back from the Black Cats' summer training camp in Italy last night and is due in Hull today for talks with a view to signing for the 2013/14 campaign.
Graham has endured a miserable time on Wearside, failing to score in 13 competitive appearances since his high-profile £5million move from Swansea in January.
And his move away from the Stadium of Light began to look increasingly likely last week when Tigers boss Steve Bruce indicated his interest in the player.
Graham's move to Sunderland was shrouded in difficulties from the start due to his previous vocal support for north-east rivals Newcastle.
Now Bruce is close to coming to the rescue of a player who netted 15 goals in 54 appearances for the Swans following the Welsh club's promotion to the top-flight in 2011.
