Hull transfer news: Completed summer deals, including Robert Snodgrass and Tom Ince
A look at the players who have arrived at the KC Stadium this summer and those who have departed
Monday 21 July 2014
Under Steve Bruce, Hull avoided relegation last season, finishing four points above the drop zone but that does not tell the full extent of their year.
Hull played an attractive brand of football in the league and pushed Arsenal all the way in the FA Cup final meaning that Hull will play European football next season for the first time in their history.
Robert Snodgrass - £8m from Norwich
Following Norwich's relegation last season, Snodgrass has made sure he'll keep playing at the top level by signing for Hull. The Scottish midfielder scored six goals in 30 appearances last term including goals against Tottenham and Liverpool.
Jake Livermore - £6m from Tottenham
Livermore has been rewarded for his successful year-long loan spell at the club last season by Steve Bruce making his move permanent. The 24-year-old played in 41 games in all competitions for the Tigers last year and proved a big hit with the fans.
Tom Ince - Free from Blackpool
Hull beat off competition from several clubs to claim the signature of Ince. Still at just 22-years-old, the winger was impressive throughout his career with Blackpool and Hull will hope to harass his potential. He has three goals in 14 caps for England's Under 21s and was the Football League's Young-Player-of-the-Year in 2013.
Harry Maguire - £2.5m from Sheffield United
Maguire, a stalwart of the Sheffield United defence for the past three seasons, signed for Hull City after a dramatic u-turn by his former employers. Five days after Hull had delivered their final offer for the 19-year-old, which United rejected, the League one side came back and agreed a fee.
Andy Robertson - £2.85m from Dundee United
While unfamiliar to English audiences, Andy Robertson is considered one of Scotland's best prospects. After making an impression at Dundee, the 20-year-old has been awarded two international caps.
Matty Fryatt - Free to Nottingham Forest
Cameron Stewart - Free to Ipswich
Conor Henderson - Free to Crawley
Robert Koren, Joe Dudgeon, Abdoulaye Faye, Eldin Jakupovic, Dougie Wilson - Released
Mark Oxley - Loan to Hibernian
Conor Townsend - Loan to Dundee United
Nick Proschwitz - free to Brentford
