Here are the latest transfer rumours surrounding Yorkshire’s clubs on Friday, July 8.

Hull City face stiff competition in their quest to sign Wales’ Euro 2016 sensation Hal Robson-Kanu - while Tigers striker Abel Hernandez has been linked with a fresh move to Italy.

Premier League champions Leicester City, Swansea City and Everton are also interested in the 27-year-old, with Hull making contact with the former Reading man’s representatives last month.

Robson-Kanu was anxious to fulfil his international commitments before turning his thoughts to his club future and he revealed this week that he has others from across the globe following his exploits in France.

On the outgoing front, Hernandez could soon be on his way out of Hull, with Sampdoria keen on the Uruguayan.

According to reports in Italy, Hernandez’s agent is currently in Milan in talks with Carlo Ostio, Sampdoria sporting director, with the striker edging closer to a move back to Italy.

Leeds United star Lewis Cook is set to complete a move to Premier League side Bournemouth.

A deal which could eventually rise to £10m has been agreed for the 19-year-old.

Middlesbrough are attempting to follow up the signing of former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes by luring Bundesliga winner Neven Subotic to the Riverside Stadium from Borussia Dortmund

The Serbian international defender, who won the German league twice under Jurgen Klopp in 2011 and 2012, has been monitored by a number of clubs in England and Europe, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Stoke and three other Premier League sides - with his £8m fee not daunting would-be buyers.

But the one sticking point could revolve around a work permit for Subotic, 27, who spoke to Boro at their training base yesterday.

Sheffield Wednesday remain in talks with Watford over former loanee Daniel Pudil, who they want to sign on a full-time basis.

Barnsley have run the rule over ex-Salford City right-back Elliot Kebbie, 21 and former Blackburn Rovers central defender Sam Lavelle, 19, on trial this week.
