Bobby Zamora is on the brink of joining Hull after Fulham accepted their £5million offer.

The former West Ham striker will soon start talks with the Tigers ahead of a switch to the KC Stadium.

Zamora has been told he is free to leave Craven Cottage after just a single season with Fulham.

Boss Roy Hodgson will use the cash to rebuild his squad, with Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch top of his list.

A club statement read: 'Fulham Football Club can confirm that it has agreed a fee of £5million for the sale of Bobby Zamora to Hull City.' Zamora, 28, emerged as a Tigers target after they were beaten to the signings of Marc-Antoine Fortune and Fraizer Campbell by Celtic and Sunderland respectively.

Hull, who are also closing in on a deal for Sunderland's Daryl Murphy, will have to be patient on any deal with Zamora currently on the Cottagers' pre-season tour of Australia.

Zamora scored just two goals last season after his £4.8m move from West Ham but his partnership with Andy Johnson was still largely deemed a success.

The former England Under-21 international made his name during a prolific spell with Brighton but he then failed to establish himself after a high-profile move to Tottenham.

He joined West Ham in 2004 and scored 30 goals for the Upton Park club.
