Hull to reveal new signings
Wednesday 12 August 2009
Hull have called a press conference for tomorrow afternoon when it is expected they will announce the signings of Stephen Hunt and Kamel Ghilas.
Reading confirmed earlier this week they had agreed an undisclosed fee for the transfer of Republic of Ireland winger Hunt.
The 28-year-old is thought to have discussed terms with the Tigers before linking up with his international team-mates for tonight's friendly against Australia.
Celta Vigo striker Ghilas has also been heavily linked with a move to the KC Stadium in recent days.
The 25-year-old Algeria international, a former Blackburn target, has also played previously for Cannes and Vitoria Guimaraes.
The pair will take Hull's number of summer signings to four following the captures of Seyi Olofinjana and Jozy Altidore last week.
Manager Phil Brown had previously endured a frustrating close season in the transfer market with moves for players including Michael Owen, Fraizer Campbell, Marc-Antoine Fortune, Daryl Murphy and Habib Beye falling through.
