PHIL BROWN plans to sit down with Alvaro Negredo within the next 48 hours after having a �12m bid for the striker accepted by Real Madrid (Yorkshire Post).

The Tigers have been involved in complex negotiations with the Spanish club for the past six weeks over a move that would dwarf the club's previous record transfer fee of �5m that took Jimmy Bullard to the KC Stadium.

Real's insistence on a buy-back option is understood to have held up the talks but with agreement now reached, Brown's next task is to persuade the highly-rated striker that his future lies in the East Riding.
