Michael Dawson close to Hull switch

Michael Dawson joined Tottenham from Nottingham Forest in 2005.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has agreed a deal "in principle" to sign Tottenham defender Michael Dawson but admits a move for Jordan Rhodes is proving problematic.

Speaking after his side's 1-1 draw with Stoke, Bruce confirmed his summer-long pursuit of 30-year-old Dawson was close to bearing fruit and hopes to push the transfer through quickly.

However, having seen Blackburn reject two bids for striker Rhodes, there is plenty of work still to do if he is to replace Shane Long up front.

"It's up to me to bring two or three in -- we're close to one in particular and we hope we can get that over the line," Bruce said. "Michael Dawson we hope we can get. There's a deal in place in principle anyway. Hopefully, touch wood we'll see what develops.

"I thought I had Jordan Rhodes 24 hours ago and it seems to be further away than ever. We've been negotiating for a week.

"We'll see what this week brings and hopefully bring in the two or three we need to give the squad a hand because we've already played five competitive games."
