Paul McKenna: Fleetwood Town set to sign Hull City midfielder

League Two side Fleetwood Town are set to sign veteran midfielder Paul McKenna on loan from Hull City.

BBC Radio Lancashire reports the 35-year-old will be reunited with Cod Army boss Graham Alexander, with whom McKenna played at Preston North End.

Another of Preston's Division One title-winning squad of 2000, goalkeeper David Lucas, joined Fleetwood as a player-coach on 1 January.

McKenna is set to become their fifth signing of the transfer window.

They have been one of the busiest clubs in January, breaking their transfer record to bring in Kidderminster striker Jamille Matt, as well as signing Lucas, Gareth Evans and Mozesh Gyorio.

Former Nottingham Forest captain McKenna, who has made 603 appearances in his professional career, has not featured in a league game for Steve Bruce's Hull since a 2-1 victory against Wolves on 6 November.
