What do they say?
“I want to show the coaches and the fans what I’m all about, but not just with my physical presence. I also hope that my mobility and technical skills can add to what is already a good footballing team.”
“He is something different to what we have got. He is big, strong and powerful and he likes to run in behind a little bit, which we haven’t had a lot of.”
Hull manager Steve Bruce
