Football journalist Alan Nixon has seemingly claimed on Twitter that Hull City have made an approach for Accrington Stanley striker Dion Charles, with the Tigers having long been linked with a move for the player.
The Northern Irishman has been in stunning form for Stanley this term, notching up 19 goals across all competitions, which has in turn led to the player being handed an international call up by his country in recent months.
Naturally his form in front of goal has attracted widespread interest from other clubs, with Hull being reported to be one of the main suitors for his signature this summer.
Now it appears that Nixon has moved to ramp up the rumour mill on Twitter by seemingly confirming that the newly crowned League One champions have made an approach for the 25-year-old:
Hull City have a season ticket … https://t.co/iafCXpmcAX

Hull City quiz: Does the KCOM Stadium have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
Charles only has a couple of months remaining on his contract with Accrington and as a result he could well leave for nothing if he decides to depart for pastures new come the opening of the transfer window.
Signing Charles on a free this summer would be an absolute steal for Hull as they would be acquiring a player who is just entering his prime years as a professional.
He would add brilliantly to what is an already strong frontline and most importantly offer something different to that of Josh Magennis.
It seems almost inevitable that he will leave Stanley for a bigger club in a few months time and I don’t think anyone would begrudge him for doing so.
Hull are back on the up and he would be joining up with a growing Northern Irish contingent if he did indeed swap Lancashire for the East Riding of Yorkshire.
It’s beginning to feel like this move could already be on it’s way to being completed.
