Hull City midfielder Sam Clucas is the latest player preparing a summer exit from the recently-relegated side, with Premier League trio Leicester City, Burnley and Swansea City all showing interest, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 26-year-old made his name for the Tigers over the course of last season, making 41 appearances in all competitions as well as netting three times and assisting once.

The central or left-sided player joined the Yorkshire club from Chesterfield during the summer of 2015 for £1.5million, and played an integral role in the Championship play-off winners’ successful promotion campaign.
However, after a taste of England’s top-flight, Clucas will now be keen to retain his status alongside the Premier League elite, meaning a move away from the KCOM Stadium is a must.
Now-permanent Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare will be looking to strengthen his midfield over the course of the summer, with title-winning hero and 2016 PFA Player of the Year winner Riyad Mahrez already stating his desire and intentions to leave the Foxes during this transfer window.
Clucas’ range of passing and work-rate would be a shrewd addition for the King Power Stadium side, who struggling in their Premier League title defence last season.
Whereas Swansea will not want a repeat of last season, which in the end saw them escape the drop by seven points, but showed there was significant improvement necessary following a campaign perilously close to a second-tier return.
A Liberty Stadium midfield boasting technically gifted players such as Jack Cork and Tom Carroll would only be boosted by Clucas’ addition, with a scrap for his services seemingly set to occur.
