Hull City suffered four consecutive league defeats in September, which led them to part ways with their manager, Shota Arveladze.

This means The Tigers are searching for a new manager and a few candidates have been linked to the vacant job at the MKM Stadium.

Reports in the UK have stated Pedro Martins is the most likely candidate to become the new Hull manager. O Jogo relay this and provide their own information on this case.

The newspaper states they have found out there is a real possibility for the 52-year-old to join the English club. There have been preliminary contacts between the two parties and Hull chairman Acun Ilıcalı has already presented a project to Martins.

The two parties held talks to find out, on one hand, if the deal can take shape, and on the other hand, if it deserves unconditional approval from both parties.

Meanwhile, Hull managed to end their poor run with a 2-1 victory over Wigan Athletic at home.

O Jogo state Martins was in the attendance at the MKM Stadium to watch the clash against the Latics.

This is seen as a ‘clear sign that negotiations will continue’ between Hull and Martins in the next few days. This would also indicate the Championship side are closing in on appointing Arveladze’s permanent successor.

Martins has been without a job since leaving Olympiacos in August and that can end if he agrees to take the job at Hull.
