Jelavic Signs For Hull

Hull City have confirmed the signing of striker Nikica Jelavic from Everton on a three and a half year contract.

The Tigers have been linked with the former Glasgow Rangers striker since the transfer window opened at the beginning of January and are said to have paid a reported £6.5million with a further £1million due if Hull avoid relegation.

The Croatian has fallen down the Everton pecking order since the arrival of Romelu Lukaku and was seeking a move away from Goodison Park in an attempt to secure his place in Croatia’s squad for the World Cup later this year.

"As soon as the manager called me, I realised straight away that he was really interested in signing me and that it is a great opportunity for me to come here," Jelavic told the club’s official website.

"It is a good club, and we have a good squad. We talked a little bit, but it didn't take long to realise that it was right for me.

"It's a newly-promoted club, but I can see straight away that there is a lot of ambition here within the club and I hope that we can build on the great start to the season and become a really strong Premier League team over the coming years."
