Hull City Set To Complete Shock Move For Inter Milan Player
Transfer deadline day is upon us, folks! Managers up and down the country are hoping to tie up the last few pieces of business before tonight's cut-off point.
And what better way to kick off the day than welcoming an Italian international and Inter Milan player to the Premier League.
According to Sky Sports, Hull are on the verge of signing Andrea Ranocchia on loan until the end of the season.
City have brokered a deal and hope to iron out the minor details before the Italian defender completes his medical.
The 28-year-old is believed to be in the country ahead of his move, and is widely expected to be Marco Silva's first of man signings today.
Ranocchia has fallen down the pecking order at Inter and has been restricted to just nine games this campaign.
Manager Stefano Pioli has sanctioned the move with the experienced player looking for first-team football with Hull offering him that opportunity.
Hull have been busy this month with deals going both ways having sold Robert Snodgrass, Jake Livermore and Andy Robertson.
While drafting in; Oumar Niasse, Markus Henriksen, Lazar Markovic and Omar Elabdellaoui to the KC Stadium.
It's not doom and gloom at Hull after all.
