Hull City Bolster Their Midfield
Where Will Ozan Tufan Fit in Under Shota Arveladze?
Long-term Fenerbahce midfielder Ozan Tufan has now been snapped up by Hull City. This won’t be Tufan’s first venture into English football following a loan spell at Watford that saw him make seven Premier League appearances last season. It is now the second-tier, the Championship, that beckons for the Turkish international.
Talking of Turkey and Tufan has 65 caps to his name since making his first one back in 2014. In that period, he has netted nine times for his country.
Focusing on his new team and Hull City are in the business of restoring themselves as a Championship mainstay. There has been a rollercoaster nature to the club both on and off of the field. Whether it be under Nigel Adkins, Grant McCann or the man who took over in January, Shota Arveladze from Georgia.

What is the Other News Surrounding Hull City?
The sale of Jarrod Bowen has seen the winger go from strength to strength with both West Ham and England. We could now see Keane Lewis-Potter follow in his footsteps in earning a big move to the promised land, with several top-flight clubs reportedly interested.
Along with Lewis-Potter, Hull City have seen George Honeyman, Richie Smallwood and Tom Eaves depart the KCOM amongst others. Honeyman in particular is a big loss – the former Sunderland midfielder is a part of a very exciting window for Gary Rowett and Millwall.
Moving onto the incomings and alongside Tufan, Hull City have brought in Tobias Figueiredo who played his role in the playoff victory of Nottingham Forest last term. Tufan may not have excelled during his time at Vicarage Road but he could well be a very astute pickup for the Tigers either way.
