The Barclays Premier League newcomers have signed Sagbo on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

"I am so happy to have signed for Hull City, and I am very grateful for the opportunity," Sagbo told his new club's official website.

"I can't wait to get going, and I look forward to meeting my new team-mates this weekend.

"I want to show the coaches and the fans what I'm all about, but not just with my physical presence. I also hope that my mobility and technical skills can add to what is already a good footballing team."

France-born Sagbo, an Ivory Coast international, had previously been linked to Celtic and West Ham, the club of his half-brother Guy Demel.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce had spoken of his admiration for the forward, who has previously played for Monaco, and of a desire to push through a deal.
