Dobson has struggled at Canberra Raiders recently
Hull FC are on the verge of signing Canberra Raiders' Michael Dobson.
The ex-Wigan and Catalans half-back, 21, is out of favour with Raiders and is expected to sign a two-and-a-half year contract at Hull.
The Black and Whites are in the market after Richard Horne suffered a serious neck injury recently.
Dobson is keen to return to a UK club soon because work permit restrictions will come into effect if he is not in Britain by the end of the season.
Hull are favourites to sign him because rivals Harlequins do not have a vacant place on the register this year.
