Hull City have released Adama Diomande from the remainder of his contract, allowing the striker to link up with Los Angeles FC.
An announcement came last night from Hull’s official Twitter account (@HullCity) that Diomande had joined Los Angeles after having his contract at the KCOM Stadium cancelled.

The 28-year-old has been with Hull since 2015, managing to make 64 appearances for the Tigers, which have brought eight goals.
The striker was part of Steve Bruce’s squad that won promotion from the Sky Bet Championship in 2016, although he didn’t feature in the play-off final victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
Diomande was subsequently part of Hull’s squad during their Premier League campaign the following year, with the striker managing to make 22 top-flight appearances, as well as contributing in the FA Cup and League Cup.
This season, Diomande has found his opportunities limited back in the Championship, with the Norwegian international making just 19 appearances across all competitions, which have brought one goal.
Diomande’s single goal this season came in August’s 4-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers.
It is little surprise that Hull have allowed Diomande to leave the KCOM Stadium, as the forward’s role was becoming a limited one.
Diomande’s last appearance came back in February, with Nigel Adkins’ side doing well without the 28-year-old in the side.
The striker’s departure is likely to be the first of many in the coming months, as Adkins looks to overhaul the squad he has inherited at the KCOM Stadium.
