Sporting fullback Ruben Vinagre is now one step from completing his move for Hull City, according to reports.

In the past few days, stories from the Portuguese media have already been claiming the clubs have an agreement for the transfer, and then said he’d travel to England this week.

Now outlet Mais Futebol comes up to confirm that Vinagre has already landed in England. He arrived in the country today, and is now set to have his medicals and sign the contract for Hull City.

The fullback is joining the Tigers on a season-long loan deal from Sporting, and the Championship side will then have the chance to sign him by triggering a €15m purchase clause.

Vinagre wasn’t in the plans that Sporting manager Ruben Amorim had for the season, as he wasn’t even called up for the squad presentation. So that move to Hull ended up being a good way out for all parties.

The 24-year-old has some experience in English football due to his time playing for the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton.
