Here is the latest from today’s Championship transfer news.
Hull City are nearing their first away trip of the new season as they travel to Preston North End this weekend.
The Tigers will be eager to follow up their opening day victory with another three points, while the Lilywhites are still in search of their first goal.
Previous meetings between the two sides have been fairly even, with both teams winning three of their last six clashes.
However, City’s last trip to Preston was a memorable one as they hammered the home side 4-1 almost a year ago, with goals from Keane Lewis-Potter, Richard Smallwood, Josh Magennis and Andy Cannon.
Albeit it is only the second matchday of the campaign, Shota Arveladze could temporarily take top spot if they are to secure back-to-back wins on Saturday.
Here are today’s rumours...
