Hull chairman reveals Boateng deal in place

Hull City chairman Paul Duffen has revealed a deal is in place for Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng.

"He's coming in for his medical and to sign contracts on Monday," chairman Duffen told BBC Radio Humberside. "He couldn't come in earlier because he's gone to fulfil a commitment in France playing in a charity match to raise money for Africa."

The former Feyenoord, Coventry and Aston Villa midfielder has played over 200 games in six seasons at the Riverside.

Duffen added: "All things being equal, obviously the medical has still got to go through but short of formalities we're there with George now which is great.

"He's a player of real quality and real class with a fantastic track record and will be exactly the sort of character as well as skill that we need in order to ensure we fight our second season in the Premier League a year hence."
