The Tigers confirmed the club record signing of fellow forward Nikica Jelavic from Everton on Wednesday and less than 24 hours later made a breakthrough in their long-term pursuit of Long.

Jelavic cost an initial £6.5million rising to £7.5million should Hull stay in the Barclays Premier League, and Republic of Ireland international Long would cost them around £7million in a similarly-structured deal.
