Chester winger Kevin Ellison has joined League One leaders Hull City, reports BBC Radio Humberside.
Ellison previously played for Hull boss Peter Taylor at Leicester
The clubs have agreed a £100,000 fee and Ellison, 25, has agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract.
Tigers manager Peter Taylor said: "He has got tremendous potential - he's strong and he scores goals and he'll be a very good signing for us."
But the deal which would have seen Hull duo Jon Walters and Richard Hinds join Chester on loan will now not go ahead.
Taylor also signed Ellison from non-league Altrincham when he was boss at Leicester in 2001.
