Hull City’s striker Nick Proschwitz has joined Brentford on a free transfer, after only two years with the Premier League side.
Fourfourtwo.com reports that The 27-year-old striker has arrived at Griffin Park on a one-year-deal with an option for a further two season, due mainly to his lack of first-team regular football at Hull.
The German joined Hull City from German club Paderborn in 2012, but found his opportunities limited. Proschwitz has made just five starts for boss Steve Bruce’s men in that time.
Proschwitz spent the second half of last season on loan at Barnsley, scoring four goals in 14 Championship appearances. Brentford’s boss Mark Warburton is said to be keen to see his new man in a Brentford shirt.
“Nick is a very experienced player,” he said. “He put in some fantastic performances in Germany before his move to Hull. Warburton said in an interview with Brentford’s official website.
“He is an aerial threat and has very good technical ability, and we think he will bring outstanding quality to the squad.” he added.
Proschwitz has previously played for SpVgg Greuther Fürth as a youth, before moving on to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim II, Hamburger SV II, VfL Wolfsburg II, Hannover 96 II, FC Vaduz, FC Thun, FC Luzern and others.
The forward, who had previously played in Liechtenstein and Switzerland as well as his native Germany, scored seven goals for Hull in all competitions.
