Yannick Sagbo to complete Hull City switch

Next Story

Yannick Sagbo has today completed a move from Ligue 1 outfit Evian to Premier League new-boys Hull City.

Although no official confirmation has been offered by the Yorkshire-based club, Evian have announced the deal on their website.

"Evian and Hull have reached an agreement for the permanent transfer of Yannick Sagbo," said the French club.

"The ETG FC wishes all success to Yannick for the rest of his career."

Sagbo also confirmed the news on his personal twitter account, coming out of his native French tongue, to post the tweet.

It read: "New club New Life go Hull city tigers".

Sagbo has become the Tigers 8th signing of the summer, but Hull could still be pursuing one more target.

Bruce has confirmed his interest in Stoke midfielder Wilson Palacios and South African playmaker Daylon Claasen, so it is painfully clear Bruce wants to add another midfielder to his ranks.

That midfielder could also come in the form of Nottingham Forest's Adlene Guedioura, who is reportedly another target.

One man who won't be joining the Tigers is Gary Hooper. The one-time target has joined Norwich for a fee believed to be around the £5 million mark from Scottish giants Celtic.
