Stelios "very, very pleased" to ink Hull deal

Stelios Giannakopoulos is delighted with his deal at Hull City.

"I'm very, very pleased to be a Hull City player," said Stelios, speaking exclusively to hullcityafc.net. "My main target and my dream was to stay in England and to stay in the Premier League and Hull City have given me the chance to make my dream come true.

"I am not new to the Premier League. I have been playing in this division for the last five years with Bolton, but I have come to Hull City to make a new start and take another step in my career.

"I have ambitions and I have dreams. I want to help Hull City with all of the strength that I have."

The former Bolton midfielder admits the opportunity to work alongside Phil Brown once again was a major factor in his decision to move to East Yorkshire and he says he owes a debt of gratitude to Brown and City Chairman Paul Duffen.

"Myself and the gaffer have known each other ever since I arrived in England and we have a very good relationship.

"At this point, I would like to thank the gaffer and the chairman for offering me this deal. If those two were not here, maybe I wouldn't have signed."
