Former Pompey man set for Tigers move?
Sky Sports sources understand Hull City have agreed a fee with Manchester City for striker Benjani.
Hull boss Phil Brown has spent the summer trying to improve his attacking options and has missed out on the likes of Michael Owen,Fraizer Campbell and Marc-Antoine Fortune.
Brown has recently added Kamel Ghilas and Jozy Altidore to his squad, and is now hoping to bring Benjani to the KC Stadium.
Benjani appears to have no future at Eastlands following Mark Hughes’ summer spending spree and he has not even made the bench this season.
He has been linked with a return to former club Portsmouth, with Paul Hart admitting the 31-year-old is among his targets. (Sky Sports)
Benjani arrived at Eastlands with a bang, scoring on his debut against Man United but has since suffered with injury and loss of form and given the strikers Mark Hughes has brought in this summer the Zimbabwean was always going to find it hard to get a look in and a move to Hull City could suit him down to the ground.
Phil Brown’s side desperately need a goalscorer. Last term the Tigers managed just 39 goals with Giovanni top scoring with just eight. Benjani is very much a player who when in the mood can do some real damage but far too often goes months without a goal but at the KC Stadium the 31 year old could well be a success as he tries to reignite his career.
