Hull manager Steve Bruce is keen to bolster his squad for next season as they prepare for their Europa League qualification campaign.
The 31-year-old Lescott, who hopes to have a medical later this week, was not offered a new contract by City when his deal ran out earlier this summer. The former England international had dropped down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.
Lescott joined City from Everton for a fee of around £22m in August 2009 - and made 92 Premier League appearances, scoring seven goals.
He made the first of 26 England appearances as a substitute for Shaun Wright-Phillips in a Euro 2008 qualifier against Estonia at Wembley in October 2007. Four days later he started on the left side of Englandâs defence in the next qualifier in Russia.
Lescott played three times for his country in the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine and won his final England cap against Montenegro in March 2013.
