Stelios agrees deal with Tigers

Stelios Giannakopoulos wants to play for Greece in the 2010 World Cup

Hull City have signed former Bolton midfielder Stelios Giannakopoulos until the end of the season.

The 34-year-old Greece international is a free agent after being released by Bolton Wanderers in the summer.

Hull chairman Paul Duffen told BBC Radio Humberside: "I'm delighted that circumstances have contrived to enable us to enter a win-win relationship."

Stelios, who first came to English football in 2003, is the Tigers' 13th signing since being promoted in May.

The experienced Greek, who helped his country win Euro 2004, joined Bolton on a free transfer from Olympiakos five years ago.

Duffen added: "He brings a wealth not only of experience but potential and ability."

Stelios played under Hull boss Phil Brown when he was Sam Allardyce's assistant at Bolton.
