Abel Hernandez has confirmed that he will be leaving Hull City when his contract expires at the end of June.

The Uruguayan will be available on a free transfer after the striker confirmed he could not agree on a new deal with the Tigers to remain at the KCOM stadium.

He told his followers on Twitter about the news on Saturday:

“This is why you deserve to know, directly from me, that my time at Hull is now over, everything comes to an end and today I have to say goodbye.”

“Sometimes a fair agreement is not reached, and football is like that. I wish you all the best for the next year, I truly that you can soon return to the Premier League because the club deserves it!”

We are reportedly interested in signing the 27-year-old and his decision to leave Hull will no doubt spark a transfer scramble between a host of interested clubs.

Aston Villa, Leeds United and Newcastle United are also reportedly tracking the forward, and based on his departing comments on social media, it seems like finances will play an important role in deciding his next club.

Hernandez spent the majority of last season sidelined with an Achilles tendon injury, but has an excellent record in the Championship, averaging more than a goal every two games in the second tier of English football.

  • His salary to stay here in Hull was to be ridiculously high and he just isn’t worth half of his asking price. We are already trying to offload our high earners to balance the books and probably improve moerale too, so why would Monk saddle himself with another such milstone. Let Leeds have him along with his inflated expectations, after all he’ll probably get sacked with their next manager after 3 months in the job!

  • What a circus we are becoming. Last year under Harry we were linked to everyone ,with this season no different. Perhaps we enjoy it and perhaps we don’t. Who knows. What is apparent is the fact that Garry Monk hasn’t come out with any promised signing as yet and that includes the Pederson position.

  • Brooklyn are you serious laughing stock it’s the the beginning of June calm down monk will be doing things behind. The scene’s

  • Damian.Point I am making is that the media etc. are linking everybody to BCFC which ,IMO,makes us look daft when nothing actually happens. No fault of Garry Monk at all. Last year we had the Harry circus of players ‘due to sign’ etc .Actually,I am hoping we do not sign a raft of players as what we have and what is rapidly coming through like Hale,O’keefe,Seddon,Mcfarlane will do me.Left back is needed I must admit,but again much talk about Pederson which could go either way.

    • Way I see it that just makes the media look data not us! Don’t read anything in to it, everyone’s on holidays so things are quiet so the media have to write about something. They hear a story about certain players being out of contract then find the clubs that ended the season in a relegation battle or a newly promoted club and assume they are desperate for players. Same every season, best to ignore it and pay close attention to the club’s official website ????
