Hull close to midfielder signing, Premier League experience

Share

Hull City began life back in the Championship with a 1-1 draw away at promotion hopefuls Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Tigers were relegated from the Premier League last season under Marco Silva, and as with any side dropping down a division, there has been much change around the KCOM Stadium, with Silva's own departure instigating many others to follow him.

The media outlet claims the former Sunderland midfielder is in advanced negotiations over a move to the Tigers, after being released by the Mackems at the end of last season. He has had the chance to leave the country and take up a lucrative contract in either China or Turkey this summer, but instead wants to stay in England and continue his career here even if he gets less money.

The 32-year-old Sweden worldwide is a free agent after leaving Sunderland following their relegation from the Premier League.

A career that has seen the Swede play for the likes of Arsenal, where he was a graduate of their academy, Birmingham City and Sunderland, Larsson would be a player who would make an impact on a squad from the beginning.

And they are set to fill that gap by signing Larsson.
