Hull defender Jacob Greaves to undergo Ipswich medical as Jaden Philogene talks continue


Hull City centre-back Jacob Greaves has been granted permission to undergo a medical ahead of his proposed move to Ipswich Town.

Meanwhile, talks between the clubs over the potential transfer of Jaden Philogene continue.

The Athletic reported last week that Ipswich made a joint offer worth about £35million plus add-ons for Greaves and his Hull team-mate Philogene.

A double deal is regarded as likely but not yet agreed — and 22-year-old winger Philogene also has strong interest from Crystal Palace.

Greaves, who joined Hull’s youth system in 2008, was viewed as a key player in their own bid to follow in the footsteps of Ipswich and achieve promotion to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old centre-back has been a regular in Hull’s defence across the past four seasons, making 177 first-team appearances for the club.

Greaves was named in the the Championship Team of the Season for 2023–24 and voted Hull City’s Player of the Year for the same campaign, with multiple suitors monitoring his future.

Philogene caught the eye with 12 goals and six assists in 33 appearances across all competitions.

He came through Aston Villa’s academy and recoded three first-team appearances before joining Hull last September in a £5m deal, which included a buy-back option if Hull were promoted.

Philogene also accumulated four caps and scored three goals for England’s Under-21s during the 2025 European Championship qualifiers.

Ipswich have already completed the permanent signing of Omari Hutchinson from Chelsea and have added brought in defender Ben Johnson from West Ham United.

Ipswich are preparing for their first season back in the Premier League since 2001-02, having secured back-to-back promotions in League One and the Championship.

Hull finished seventh in the Championship this season, missing out on a promotion play-off place by just one spot.
