Hull City agree £9.5m Abel Hernandez deal


Hull City have signed striker Abel Hernandez from Palermo for an estimated fee of £9.5m.

One of the most prolific strikers in Italy, the Uruguay international was pivotal to Palermo's exceptional season in the Serie B last year, helping them achieve promotion in the Serie A.

Benfica were reportedly interested in signing the player but the 24-year-old opted to sign for Hull City, much to the delight of manager Steve Bruce.

"Abel is a fantastic signing and highlights just how far the Club has come in such a short space of time," Steve Bruce told the club's official website.

"He is an exciting talent and like myself, I'm sure the supporters can't wait to see him in action," added the manager.

Hernandez is expected to make his debug for the Tigers against West Ham when the Premier League resumes after the international break.
