‘Done deal’ – Hull City on verge of receiving nice sum for player, already travelled to sign 3-year deal
Hull City striker Benjamin Tetteh is on his way out of the club, according to reports.
Journalist Sacha Tavolieri claims the 26-year-old is moving to France, as Metz have a ‘done deal’ for his signing.
The Ligue 1 side are reportedly paying Hull City €1.8m for the signing, and he actually already signed a three-year contract with them.
That’s the end of a short spell the player had with the Tigers, as he only played for the club for one season.
Tetteh arrived at Hull on a free transfer from Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor last summer. In his year in England, he only had one goal and four assists for the club.
The striker even had a few chances to prove himself by the start of the season, but then ended up staying out of the matchday squads for long periods.
So despite a contract until 2024, which had an option for another year, the Tigers ended up deciding to let him go. Tetteh is valued by Transfermarkt at €1.5m, so they even ended up getting a decent fee for his departure.
