Geovanni wraps up switch to Hull

Geovanni joined Manchester City from Brazilian side Cruzeiro

Hull City have completed the signing of former Manchester City midfielder Geovanni on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old Brazilian joined his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp in Italy on Saturday.

Assistant manager Brian Horton told BBC Radio Humberside: "He's got a very good track record so I think he'll be an excellent signing for us.

"We've heard a lot about him and spoken to quite a few people, but we saw him ourselves so we know the player."

And Horton revealed that France international Bernard Mendy will also join them this weekend for training, although the deal to sign him has not yet gone through.

Horton said: "He's on his way out here. He's not signed but it is virtually agreed so again he's a good acquisition.

"Phil Brown knows him well. He's played for big clubs and he wants to get back in the French national team - he thinks by playing in the Premier League he could fulfil that ambition."

Meanwhile, former Danish international Henrik Pedersen has left the club and returned to Denmark.
