Check in to Hull City vs West Ham United

Hull City have officially completed the club record signing of Uruguayan international Abel Hernandez.

The BBC claim that Steve Bruce has invested £10m in the Palermo star, making good use of funds made from the sale of Shane Long to Southampton.

Hernandez helped his side return to Serie A with a 14 goal haul securing a Serie B title and his national team record of seven goals in 14 appearances is also an impressive tally.

Steve Bruce is understandably delighted with the capture and pointed out how a signing of this magnitude illustrates how Hull City have grown in stature in recent seasons, stating;

“Abel is a fantastic signing and highlights just how far the Club has come in such a short space of time,”

“He is an exciting talent and like myself, I’m sure the supporters can’t wait to see him in action,”
