Hull City are close to an agreement for Galatasaray winger Nordin Amrabat

Hull City are close to reaching a loan-agreement over Galatasaray winger Nordin Amrabat according to Habertürk.

Amrabat has been linked with a Premier League move following recent comments by the players agent Barry Thomas.

"We're aware of the interest from the Premier League," Thomas told Sky Sports.

"But he's contracted to Galatasaray and although tighter restrictions on foreign players in the Turkish league mean he could be available, his future very much depends on Galatasaray."

Galatasaray are facing increasing pressure for foreign spaces as the Turkish Football Federation only permits six foreign players on the field at any one time.

The Lions currently have 10 non-Turkish players on their books.

Amrabat joined Galatasaray from Kayserispor for €8.6 million last season and has four years left on his contract.

The 26-year-old Moroccan international scored once and provided 10 assists in 43 games last season including three assists in 10 Champions League appearances.

Hull are also closely linked with Beşiktaş goalkeeper Allan McGregor.
