Hull City striker Abel Hernandez has revealed that he wants to leave his club and return to Italy, fuelling further speculation over his future.
The Uruguayan international joined the Tigers for £10 million- a club record fee. His first season in the Premier League ended miserably as his team was relegated to the Sky Bet Championship.
And now, Hernandez has made it clear that he doesn’t want to see out his three-year contract with the Yorkshire club.
He told TuttoMercato: ‘’The first season in the Premier League was very interesting.
‘’The beautiful aspect is the type of football, with teams tactically less closed, which is more exciting for us strikers’’.
He said, ‘’Torino are looking for me? Yes, it would be nice if I took, because it is a team that has a game which over the last few years all the strikers have scored a lot and did very well.
‘’My goal is to return to Italy and do it in the Torino shirt would be great. I already imagine how it would be fun to play alongside Maxi Lopez and Quagliarella’’.
Hernandez failed to fulfil his potential in his first campaign in England. His torrid goal tally was coupled with a three-match ban he was handed for punching Manchester United’s defender Phil Jones in the final game.
The statement comes as manager Steve Bruce had a ‘positive’ meeting with the club owners over budget he will be given to spend on new players. He asked for further talks over the next week before he commits himself to a promotion campaign.
Hull City are the only Championship club yet to make a new signing, having already lost ten players.
