Hull City have announced the signing of Uruguay forward Abel Hernandez from Italian Serei A outfit Palermo.
The 24-year-old arrives the KC Stadium for a club record fee and has signed a three-year deal.
“Abel is a fantastic signing and highlights just how far the club has come in such a short space of time,” manager Steve Bruce said.
“He is an exciting talent and like myself, I’m sure the supporters can’t wait to see him in action.”
Hernandez featured at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil and has 7 goals in 12 international matches.
He scored 14 league goals in 28 matches for Palermo last season.
