Hull FC are attempting to add more players to their squad ahead of next season and the latest two players to be heavily linked with the club are Jordan Thompson and Matty Dawson-Jones.
The Black and Whites have signed Danny Langtree from Oldham and Levy Nzoungou from Salford Red Devils to compete for the first-team but FC are also looking to add at least two more senior players.
Hull Live understands the club are quietly confident of landing Thompson's services, though Leeds have made an offer to the forward after he spent the Qualifiers with the Rhinos following his departure from financially stricken Leigh Centurions in the summer. Thompson played for Hull from 2014 to 2017 and left ahead of this season but could make a welcome return.
Another former Leigh player who looks set to arrive at the KCOM Stadium is Dawson-Jones. The outside back has already confirmed he has left the Centurions after joining the Championship club from St Helens in 2016.
FC originally just made an inquiry about Dawson-Jones' availability but now it's understood that talks have advanced. The 28-year-old would add depth to coach Lee Radford's three-quarter line if the deal goes through.
