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 on Tuesday with a view to completing his switch to the Barclays Premier League, ITV 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.
