Hull City seeded for European draw

Hull City have been seeded in pot two for the Europa League draw later today.

It means they could get a more favourable tie in the Third Qualifying Round and will avoid PSV Eindhoven and Italian side Torino who are also in pot two.

The Tigers could face Scottish or Northern Irish opposition in Motherwell or Crusaders, or teams from Slovakia, Albania and Bulgaria among others.

Blackpool winger Tom Ince is close to becoming Hull's third signing of the summer after turning down a move to Inter Milan.

Ince is meeting Tigers officials for the first time today, with a view to completing his switch to the Barclays Premier League, Press Association Sport understands.

The 22-year-old England Under-21 winger met Inter chiefs in Italy last month to discuss a possible move but decided his future was in England.

Despite Ince being out of contract at Bloomfield Road, he is under 23 so Blackpool will be due compensation when he makes his next move.

Hull boss Steve Bruce completed the permanent signing of Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore last month and has also landed Robert Snodgrass from Norwich for a reported £7million fee.

Hull have signed Scotland international Robert Snodgrass from Norwich.

The clubs agreed a fee for the 26-year-old on Thursday, understood to be a one-off payment of £7million, and personal terms have now been settled on the winger's switch to the KC Stadium.

It is the second major signing of the close season for the Tigers, who last week bought former loanee Jake Livermore from Tottenham for a club record fee, rising to £8million.

It is understood that Tigers boss Steve Bruce has agreed to match the club-record fee that brought former loanee Jake Livermore to the club on Wednesday, with an initial £7million rising to £8million.

Scotland international Snodgrass, 26, scored seven times in 34 games for the Canaries last season but could not prevent their relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

He is eager to continue his top-flight career and is expected to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms in the next 24 hours.

Sunderland had been linked with a move for the versatile Snodgrass, but were reportedly unwilling to match the fee offered by Hull.

Should the former Leeds player become City's second summer signing it would provide further proof of the commitment shown by the club's controversial owner Assem Allam.

Although he has courted the fans' ire with unsuccessful attempts to rename the team Hull Tigers, as well as unveiling a new badge earlier this month, he has also agreed plenty of big-money signings.

Bruce has been allowed to break the transfer record several times since winning promotion, first with Tom Huddlestone's £5.25million capture a year ago, then in January when Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long came in for up to £7million each.

Livermore has already raised the bar again and Snodgrass would equal that mark.
