To see a list of completed deals in the summer window thus far, visit theScore’s Premier League transfer tracker.

Cardiff City accepted an offer from Hull City for David Marshall on Saturday, as the latter outfit scrambles to address a squad depleted by injuries and in desperate need of recruitment.

BBC Sport understands the fee is worth £5 million, and Cardiff handler Lee Trollope described the deal as “imminent” ahead of his side’s Saturday clash with Reading.

The move would mark the exit of a popular figure in the Welsh capital. Marshall joined Cardiff from Norwich City, and has appeared more than 280 times for the club. Thirty-seven of those outings came in the Bluebirds’ sole Premier League term in 2013-14.

Hull has upset the odds by beginning its top-flight return with two consecutive wins, but looks vastly unprepared for the marathon of a full campaign. Negotiations over the club ownership are ongoing – negatively affecting transfer business – and Mike Phelan, managing on an interim basis since Steve Bruce’s resignation, has no idea whether he’ll be in charge in a few matches’ time.

On Humberside, Marshall would vie with Swiss shot-stopper Eldin Jakupovic for first-team minutes.

Hull welcomes Manchester United to Anlaby Road to round off Saturday’s spate of fixtures.
