According to his agent Willie McKay, Hull will sign Guinea international Kamil Zayatte at the end of the season. McKay claims Hull will take up their option to sign the 23 year old permanently next summer for an agreed fee.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "(Hull chairman) Paul Duffen spoke with the president of Young Boys Berne.
"He's a very clever negotiator and Zayatte could be worth three times the fee Duffen agreed with them at the time.
"But Kamil is very happy to be at Hull. He's delighted with the coaches and his team-mates. He's loving it there and he's been welcomed with open arms by the fans."
