Hull-born half back Liam Harris will sign for Hull FC imminently, Up the Cream understands.
The ex-Hull KR number seven has been playing for Doncaster in League One this season, having rejected a new deal at Rovers at the end of last season.
Harris spent 2017 on dual reg at York, and looked comfortably at home in the sports third tier.
He is a former City of Hull Academy player, but really he came through the ranks in East Hull.
After signing for Doncaster, Harris featured for Hull FC in pre-season, a club who have kept an eye on him throughout Richard Horne’s reign as head coach.
The 21-year-old is a natural scrum half that is good with the ball, can kick, and has a decent running game too.
Harris’ expected signing comes at a desperate time, with Hull missing Marc Sneyd, Albert Kelly, Jordan Abdull and Carlos Tuimavave to injury.
Jake Connor is the only other recognised half back still fit at the club, with Harris thought to go straight into the side at the Magic Weekend on Sunday.
The deal is believed to be three and a half years long.
