Hull City have revealed the shirt numbers their recent signings will wear this season.

Hull City have revealed what squad numbers five new players have been given.

The Tigers were very busy on transfer deadline day, bringing in a quintet of new faces that are sure to excite supporters and Steve Bruce alike.

Abel Hernandez, who arrived in a £10million deal from Palermo, will wear the number nine shirt this season, while Brian Lenihan, who signed from Cork City for an undisclosed fee, will wear the number 31.

Mohamed Diame has been given the number 17 shirt, while Gaston Ramirez will wear number 25 and Hatem Ben Arfa will be number 34.

Bruce has already spoken of his happiness following what was arguably the most exciting day in terms of transfers that Hull fans had ever seen.

The trick now is to ensure all his new arrivals can be moulded into an effective team, but then that is what he is paid for.
