Sone Aluko: Has returned to English football

Tigers boss Steve Bruce revealed on Saturday that the 23-year-old was a player he was looking to add to his squad.

Aluko came through the youth ranks at Birmingham during Bruce's reign at St Andrew's, but was moved on before making an impact with the senior side.

He has since gone on to catch the eye at Aberdeen and Rangers.

The Nigeria international only linked up with the Gers in November 2011, but the financial troubles at Ibrox have forced him through the exits.

Aluko is among those to have rejected the opportunity to transfer their contract to Rangers newco, allowing him to move on as a free agent.

"Hull City have completed the signing of Sone Aluko," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The 23-year-old, who can operate in midfield, out wide and up front, has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the club."
