Hull City sign Dynamo Kiev's Dieumerci Mbokani on season-long loan

Hull City have signed Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent move.

Mbokani, 30, spent last season on loan at Norwich City, where he scored seven goals in 29 Premier League appearances but was unable to prevent the Canaries from being relegated.

The former DR Congo international had been interesting a number of clubs, but the Tigers moved first to agree a deal and said they were "delighted" to have completed the move.

Caretaker manager Mike Phelan, who has said in recent days that he needed to boost his squad, has now added James Weir, Ryan Mason and Will Keane.
