Hull City have signed former Celtic striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink.
The Dutchman has signed a two-year deal at the KC Stadium after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
Vennegoor of Hesselink is able to join Hull outside the transfer window as he is a free agent after being released by Celtic earlier this summer.
Hull were keen to bolster their attack before the close of the transfer window, but saw a move for Marlon Harewood from Aston Villa fail to materialise. (Sky Sports)
Phil Brown was keen to bolster his attack but failed to do so as the transfer deadline came to an end so he then intelligently decided to make a move for Celtic’s former Dutch hitman and it may well be a deal that really works well for the Tigers.
The 30 year old scored goals in abundance in Holland, leading PSV to three Eredivisie titles and he also managed to maintain some consistency in front of goal whilst at Parkhead, netting 44 goals in three seasons north of the border and collecting a fair bit of silverware in the process.
Obviously there will be those who belittle those leagues and he won’t score as freely in the Premier League but I would wager he may well do the business for Hull City as he looks to cement his place in the Dutch international set up as they prepare for the upcoming World Cup.
