Hull City bring in new signing as McCann looks to boost attacking options

Published

on

Hull City have signed six-foot-six striker Norbert Balogh after the free agent impressed on trial with the club.

The Hungarian forward has signed a one-year deal at the KCOM Stadium, with the club having the option of a 12 month extension.

Balogh saw his contract expire with Italian side Palermo after spending last season on loan with APOEL Nicossa in Cyprus.

The gigantic striker scored just two goal in 14 appearances in the 2018/19 campaign.

The 23-year-old begun his professional career at Hungarian side Debreceni, scoring seven goals and providing seven assists in 39 appearances before he sealed his move to Palermo.

Hull have struggled to find their feet under McCann, who joined the club from Doncaster Rovers in the summer.

The Tigers are currently 20th, just two place and one point above the relegation zone, and have won just once in the league this term.

McCann appears to have his work cut out if he is to repeat the success of his predecessor Nigel Adkins, who led the Tigers to a 13th-place finish last season.

The Verdict

This looks like an interesting addition from McCann.

Summer signing Tom Eaves has struggled to find his goalscoring form at the Championship club and is yet to find the net, despite making seven appearances this season.

Hull do have some excellent attacking talent, such as Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki, so you feel if he settles well Balogh may get a fair few opportunities.

The 23-year-old’s career has stalled somewhat and seems to be a speculative signing by Hull.

It will be interesting to see how long McCann waits until he gives the giant striker a chance.
