Hull City have agreed a deal in principle with Malatyaspor's Ghanaian international striker Benjamin Tetteh.

The Hull Live reports that the 25-year-old forward will likely become the second frontline attacker signed by boss Shota Arveladze ahead of the new Championship campaign.

Tetteh is understood to have edged closer to a move to the MKM Stadium in recent days after fresh negotiations with owner Acun Ilicali and Arveladze, and will join Columbian forward Oscar Estupinan.

City have been working hard to add firepower to their ranks after the struggles of last season, and Tetteh will likely arrive in East Yorkshire having opted to leave the stricken Turkish side following their relegation from the Super Lig - last term he netted seven times in 26 outings.

Ilicali had previously held talks with Tetteh earlier in the window but has since rekindled his interest in the ex-Sparta Prague, Standard Liege, Slovacko and Bohemians forward.

He has been linked with a 3.8m euros move to Saudi Arabia club Al Hilial, though Hull Live understands that move was never in the offing.
