A couple of days ago, we saw reports from the Portuguese media claiming Hull City were in advanced talks to sign Ruben Vinagre from Sporting.

It was said by Record that the deal was ‘practically done’, as the fullback would join the English side on a loan deal.

Now as newspaper O Jogo features a story about this transfer today, they bring a few more details on the negotiations.

It’s claimed that Vinagre is indeed ‘on his way’ to Hull City, as the transfer is ‘very close’ to being confirmed.

The Tigers are reportedly signing the fullback on a loan deal, and will have an option to buy him for €15m next summer.

The player was not in Sporting’s plans for the new season, and wasn’t even called up by manager Ruben Amorim for the squad presentation this weekend.

O Jogo says that since he didn’t receive any offers from the Premier League this time, then he decided to move to the Championship by signing for Hull City.

Vinagre previously played in English football when representing Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton.
