Report: Trabzonspor table bid for Hull City striker Abel Hernandez

Hull City KC Stadium

Hull City’s Abel Hernandez looks set to leave the club before the transfer window closes.

According to a report in the Italian editorial TMW, Trabzonspor have tabled an official bid for Hull City star Abel Hernandez as they look to sign the striker on a three-year deal.

The Uruguay international only joined the Tigers 12 months ago, arriving at the KC Stadium for a club record transfer fee - as announced by the club - and went on to make just 15 Premier League starts last season.

A return to Serie A has been heavily mooted, with Sky Sports Italia last month insisting that Chievo, Bologna and Torino were fighting it out for his signature.

However, a move to Italy has so far failed to materialise for Hernandez and new reports cite a switch to Turkey could be in the pipeline as Trabzonspor make Hull an offer.

Double Swoop:

Signing Hernandez from Hull would be a double swoop for the Turkish out after they completed a deal for fellow attacker Dame N’Doye in the past few days - as covered by the BBC.

No future:

Despite arriving at the club boasting a pretty decent record in Italy, Hernandez struggled to adapt to the physicality of the English game, and the Championship can be unforgiving for foreign stars.

Hull spent a lot of money on him, and his wages probably fall in line with the highest earners at the club.

Boss Steve Bruce has brought in Chuba Akpom on loan from Arsenal and has so far retained the services of Nikica Jelavic this summer, paving the way for Hernandez to depart.
