Eric Lichaj is edging closer to the Nottingham Forest exit door, with Hull City likely to offer the defender a route across the Sky Bet Championship.
According to ESPN, Hull are in advanced talks to sign Lichaj this summer, as his Forest career looks set to come to an end.
Lichaj has been with Forest since the summer of 2013, when he arrived at the City Ground as a free agent.
Across all competitions, the USA international has made almost 200 appearances for the Reds, with the bulk of those coming in the Championship.
The 29-year-old made 28 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring three goals for Forest, including a memorable brace in an FA Cup victory over Arsenal.
However, with the versatile defender’s contract drifting into the final year, with Forest looking set to move him on this summer.
Hull, who found themselves in mid-table alongside Forest last season, are confident of sealing a deal for Lichaj.
The defender has also enjoyed spells with Leeds United and Aston Villa over his career in English football.
Aitor Karanka looks set to make some big changes to his playing squad this summer, and someone like Lichaj moving on shouldn’t really come as a huge surprise.
The defender has been a good servant for Forest, contributing greatly over the last five years.
However, a fresh start could be good for the player and also Forest.
Hull face a big rebuilding job this summer, with a number of players departing. The arrival of a reliable defender like Lichaj should also benefit them.
