Hull striker Nikica Jelavic is having a medical with West Ham, Press Association Sport understands.

Injuries to both Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia, and the departure of Modibo Maiga to Al Nassr, have left the Premier League club short of options and they are believed to have agreed a fee for the 30-year-old Croatian.

Jelavic, who remains familiar with Hammers manager Slaven Bilic from the latter's time in charge of the Croatia national team, scored eight goals in the Tigers' unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League last season and underwent surgery on a long-term knee problem earlier this year.
