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

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.

COMPLETED TRANSFERS

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.

Conor Henderson - Free to Crawley

Robert Koren, Joe Dudgeon, Abdoulaye Faye, Eldin Jakupovic, Dougie Wilson - Released
