Hull City A.F.C. have completed the signing of Robert Snodgrass from Norwich City for an undisclosed fee.
The Scotland international, 26, has agreed a three-year deal at the KC Stadium and will officially join the club on 1 July.
Snodgrass is the club’s second signing of the summer, following the permanent capture of Jake Livermore from Tottenham Hotspur for a club record fee potentially rising to £8 million.
“Having spoken to the owners and the manager here, and having seen the plans they have for this club, I was very keen to be a part of it all,” said Snodgrass.
“Once the fee was agreed between the two clubs, it all happened very quickly and everything the club has done to get the deal completed has been unbelievable. This is the start of an exciting new chapter for me and for my family and I just can’t wait to get started now.”
Snodgrass, who joined Norwich from Leeds United for £3 million in 2012, tallied six goals and two assists in 30 English Premier League appearances for the Canaries, who were relegated to the Sky Bet Championship after finishing in 18th-place in the league table, last term.
Hull will open their 2014/15 Premier League account at newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, 16 August.
Perisic attracting Serie A interest
The agent of VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Ivan Perisic, Tonci Martic, has hinted his client could be moving to Italy’s top-flight amid reported interest from AC Milan, Internazionale, Napoli and Roma.
Perisic, who impressed with Croatia at this summer’s World Cup finals, left Dortmund for Wolfburg in January 2013 but increasing speculation is suggesting he could make another switch this summer.
The Croatia international, 25, netted 10 goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances for Die Wölfe last season, helping the club secure a place in the UEFA Europa League following a fifth-place finish.
“I can confirm that I have met with [Riccardo] Bigon from Napoli. But to be clear, I have not met with him only,” Martic told ilsussidario.net.
“In these days I have talked with representatives of Inter, Milan, Roma and other clubs. But we didn’t talk only about Perisic, we talked about other players too.
“I manage many good players that could be transferred in the summer.”
Premier League side Everton are also reportedly keen on Perisic, with reports claiming the Merseysiders are willing to splash out £8 million to lure the player to Goodison Park.
Perisic is under contract at the Volkswagen Arena until 2017.
