Duffen delight at Hull capturing Hesselink
Friday 04 September 2009
Hull City chairman Paul Duffen claims Hull have beaten some big clubs to bring Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink to the KC Stadium.
The former Celtic striker was available on a free.
"I'm delighted we have beaten off all the competition to get him," Duffen said.
"We've wanted an experienced, top-drawer striker and Jan has scored prolifically in top leagues in Europe. We didn't score enough last season. Jan will play his part in using his experience. He's been looking at other big clubs in Europe but the Premier League is where he wants to play."
