Hull City agree fee for Zayatte

Zayatte has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League.

Hull City have revealed they will equal their club record transfer fee for utility player Kamil Zayatte.

After agreeing a fee for the Guinean international with Swiss side Young Boys, the 23-year old will become a permanent signing in January.

Hull chairman Paul Duffen told BBC Radio Humberside: "We have an exclusive option to buy [Kamil Zayatte] at an agreed price.

"Given the nature of his performances and his potential, it's a bargain."

Hull recently paid Spurs 2.5m for defender Anthony Gardner, who Zayatte has subsequently replaced at centre-half after he picked up a thigh injury.

He's fitting in well with the rest of the squad so he's a good find

When asked if the price agreed with Young Boys would set a new club record, Duffen simply said "it would equal it".

Zayatte has impressed with his assured performances in a Hull side that has excelled in the Premier League and are currently third in the table.

And Duffen added Zayatte has been a welcome addition to the set-up at the KC Stadium.

"I'm delighted with him, he's a lovely lad and he's fitting in well with the rest of the squad so he's a good find," he said.
