Done Deal: Hull City Sign Evian Striker Yannick Sagbo

KC Stadium side bring in Ligue 1 marksman.

Hull have officially completed the signing of Evian striker Yannick Sagbo.

The 25-year old striker has flown from France to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms, after the club revealed they had ‘reached an agreement’ for his transfer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £3million. The former West Ham target has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now after impressing in Ligue 1.

Upon their return to the top tier of English football, manager Steve Bruce is in desperate need of fire-power up top if they wish to succeed. With the worst scoring record of any team in the top half of the Championship last term, the Tigers’ success was down to their brave defending, and not their finishing prowess.

With 20 goals in the last two seasons in all competitions, Sagbo provides to striking quality to give Hull a chance of Premier League survival, as their potential rivals have all strengthened, with the likes of Cardiff, Sunderland and Aston Villa wasting no time this summer bringing in new additions.

Hull have already signed George Boyd, Maynor Figueroa, Curtis Davies, Ahmed Elmohamady, Allan McGregor and Steve Harper as they prepare for their return to the top flight. With Sagbo’s arrival set to be announced this weekend, Bruce is also working on a deal to bring ex-Tottenham midfielder Wilson Palacios to the club.
