Former Manchester City youngster Omar Elabdellaoui is set to join Premier League strugglers Hull City, despite having been linked with Watford, it has been claimed.
Both Hull and Watford are in the market to make additions to their squad in the current transfer window and have been mooted as keen on the Norway international.
Elabdellaoui currently turns out for Greek giants Olympiacos, but is expected to leave the club in the current transfer window.
According to French outlet Foot Mercato, the defender-cum-midfielder is poised to head to Hull, where he will link up with former Olympiacos coach Marco Silva.
Silva, who managed Olympiacos for the 2015/16 campaign, has just taken over at Hull in succession to Mike Phelan.
The Portuguese coach is desperate to bring in fresh faces as quickly as possible and it appears he is set to meet with success with former charge Elabdellaoui.
The Norway international is no stranger to English football, having come through the youth ranks at Manchester City.
He had a series of loan spells away from the Citizens before joining Eintracht Braunschweig permanently in the summer of 2013.
