City let two leave on Transfer Deadline Day

City let two leave on Transfer Deadline Day

Hull City had a quiet transfer deadline day but did see two players leave the club.

As expected, Jack Hobbs left the KC, eventually agreeing to sign for Nottingham Forest, a club where he has spent the first half of the season on loan. Due to the impressive performances of the centre-back this season, Bruce recalled Hobbs during January as City eventually agreed a transfer of close to £1 million due to the interest from Reading and Wigan Athletic and despite the fact that the player is out of contract in six months.

Hobbs has signed a four and a half year deal with promotion chasing Forest and leaves having made 62 appearances, scoring a solitary goal.

City`s other business on transfer deadline day was to allow Danny Graham to cut short his loan from Sunderland with the striker immediately joining Middlesbrough on loan. Following the January arrivals of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long, and after a string of disappointing performances, Bruce has chosen to retain the services of Matty Fryatt as back-up to his new signings over Danny Graham.

Graham scored just one goal during his disappointing loan spell, that coming against former club Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
