Leeds striker set for Hull switch

Leeds striker Richard Cresswell is on the verge of moving to Hull City after agreeing personal terms.

The 29-year-old, who joined Leeds from Preston in 2005, is thought to have agreed a three-year deal with the Tigers, subject to a medical. Speculation suggests Leeds will net 300,000 from the transfer - far less than the 1.15million it cost to bring Cresswell to Elland Road.

Hull boss Phil Brown told the Hull Daily Mail: "It's been documented that we're in talks with Richard and we've now agreed terms with him. It's now a case of him coming into The KC Stadium and him having something to sign.

"Where we're concerned, we've taken our business as far as we possibly can. Hopefully, when Richard comes to have a look around, he will be able to put pen-to-paper."

Cresswell's performances for Leeds have been patchy at best, but it is still somewhat disconcerting to see another player on the verge of leaving with nobody coming in. However, given everything surrounding the club it is impossible to tell what will happen between now and the first game of the season.

Whether Cresswell's time at Leeds was blighted with injury troubles or whether he is simply not as good a player as he once looked is a matter of personal opinion, but perhaps a less injury prone striker would be better given the physical nature of League One.

Or is that argument just a case of looking for a silver lining in a cloud when there isn't one...?
