Long game pays off for Hull

Shane Long has been linked with a move to Hull

Hull have had an offer accepted for West Brom striker Shane Long and have been given permission to begin talks with the player.

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.
