Hull break transfer record to sign Abel Hernandez
« on: September 02, 2014, 04:31:44 AM »

Hull City completed the signing of Uruguay striker Abel Hernandez from Italian Serie A club Palermo for a club record fee of 9.5 million pounds ($15.8 million) on Monday.

The Premier League club confirmed the deal for the 24-year-old, who has signed a three-year contract, in a statement on their website (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

Hernandez scored 14 goals last season as Palermo won promotion as Serie B champions and he has scored seven goals in 14 internationals for Uruguay since his debut in 2010.

He made two appearances as a substitute at this year's World Cup finals.
"Abel is a fantastic signing and highlights how far the club has come in such a short space of time," said manager Steve Bruce.

The fee for Hernandez broke the previous record of seven million pounds ($11.63 million) paid to Tottenham Hotspur for midfielder Jake Livermore in June, according to media reports.

That move followed just months after the then-record signing of Croatian striker Nikica Jelavic from Everton for a reported fee of 6.5 million pounds ($10.8 million).
