It’s just six days until Hull City kick-off the new Championship campaign when they play host to Bristol City at the MKM Stadium next Saturday.

Shota Arveladze has bolstered Hull’s squad with eight new additions in the summer transfer window. Hull comfortably preserved their Championship status with a 19th place finish last term and will be looking to kick-on during Arveladze's first full season at the helm.

As supporters prepare for another season in the second-tier, here are all eight of the Tigers' signings so far this summer.

 

Nathan Baxter

Baxter has re-joined Hull on a second season-long loan from Chelsea after spending the previous campaign at the MKM Stadium. The 23-year-old was initially signed to deputise for Matt Ingram when he arrived at the club last summer. He made his Championship debut in a 2-0 win at Barnsley in November 2021 and retained his place between the sticks for 12 matches until a hand injury ruled him out for 10 games.

He was restored into the starting XI for the final four league matches of the season, while Ingram headed out on an emergency short-term loan at Luton Town.

 

Tobias Figueiredo

Figueiredo featured 28 times for Nottingham Forest last season as he helped them return to the Premier League after a 23-year hiatus. He was deemed surplus to requirements by Steve Cooper following their Championship play-off final victory, after spending four-and-a-half years at the City Ground.

The 28-year-old initially joined Forest on-loan in January 2018 before signing on a permanent basis from Sporting CP in the summer of that year. He made 121 appearances for Forest and will add both quality and experience to Hull’s back-line.

 

Ozan Tufan

Tufan will be determined to prove himself in England after his loan deal at Watford was terminated by Roy Hodgson in February. The 27-year-old, who has 65 caps for Turkey, played just seven times for the Hornets in the Premier League.

He is a product of Bursaspor’s academy and went onto register four goals and 10 assists in 66 appearances for the Green Crocodiles. He switched to Turkish heavyweights Fenerbahce in the summer of 2015 but has failed to win a single trophy with the club.

The Turkish international can play in both a defensive or attacking capacity in the heart of midfield but also has experience as a right-back and right midfielder.

 

Jean Michael Seri

The signing of Seri is a real coup for the club. Not only does he have top-flight experience in Portugal, France, England and Turkey, but he also played 33 times as Fulham lifted the Championship title last season.

Seri started his career at Ivorian outfit ASEC Mimosas, who are famed for producing some of Ivory Coast’s biggest talent, including the likes of Didier Zokora, Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure, Salomon Kalou and Emmanuel Eboue.

He started his European adventure with a loan stint for FC Porto’s B team. Since then, Seri has taken in spells at Pacos de Ferreira, OGC Nice, Fulham, Galatasaray and Bordeaux respectively. His spell at Nice was perhaps the finest of his career as the Eaglets finished 3rd in the French top-flight and Seri was named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season in 2016-17.

 

Dogukan Sinik

Sinik completed his move to Hull City from Antalyaspor on Wednesday. He has spent his entire professional career at Antalyaspor, bar a loan spell with third-tier outfit Antalya Kemerspor in 2017-18 and made 122 appearances for the club.

The 23-year-old enjoyed his best individual campaign for the Scorpions last term – scoring three goals and providing seven assists in 32 league appearances.

His performances even earned him his first call-up for Turkey in March 2022. Sinik has made a good start to his international career with two goals in his first five caps.

 

Oscar Estupinan

Only bottom place Barnsley (33) scored fewer goals than Hull (41) in the Championship last term. Keane Lewis-Potter finished as their leading goal scorer with 12 goals but left for Brentford this summer, while Tom Eaves and George Honeyman, who scored five each, have also left the club.

Therefore, it’ll be intriguing to see who takes up the goal scoring responsibilities for the Tigers next season. If Estupinan can adapt to English football then he could be a very good bet.

The 25-year-old joined Vitoria de Guimaraes from Colombian side Once Caldas in 2017. He struggled to break into the side during his first two seasons in Portugal and was loaned out to Ecuadorian outfit Barcelona SC Guayaquil and Turkish side Denizlispor respectively.

Estupinan returned from Turkey to score eight times in 23 matches in the Portuguese top-flight and enjoyed his best scoring season yet with a further 15 goals in 28 matches last term.

He made his debut for Colombia in June 2022 and joined Hull on a free transfer after his contract with Vitoria expired at the end of the season.

 

Benjamin Tetteh

Benjamin Tetteh was announced as Hull’s eighth signing of the summer transfer window on Saturday. He has spent the last two seasons in Turkey with Yeni Malatyaspor – amassing 14 goals and 10 assists in 60 appearances.

He started his European career with Standard Liege but failed to break into the side in Belgium. A move to Czech Republic reignited his career as he joined Sparta Prague following his loan spell with Bohemians Prague during the 2017-18 campaign.

Tetteh scored 11 times in 28 matches during his debut season at Sparta Prague and scored a further eight goals in all competitions in his second and final campaign in Czech Republic.

He won the Czech Cup in 2018, setting up the winning goal for Guelor Kanga in the final against Slovan Liberec. Tetteh has also played seven times for Ghana and could feature at the 2022 World Cup as they face a group containing Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.

 

Allahyar Sayyadmanesh

Sayyadmanesh signed permanently for Hull City from Fenerbahce on a four-year contract with an option for a further year on 9 July. He joined the Tigers on-loan in January. He scored once in 12 appearances and was named Hull City’s Player of the Month in April 2022.

The 21-year-old joined Fenerbahce from Iranian side Esteghlal but made just three appearances for the Turkish outfit. He spent a short stint on-loan in the Turkish second-tier with Istanbulspor, before joining Zorya Luhansk on-loan for one-and-a-half seasons, scoring 15 goals in 50 matches.

They've certainly made some interesting signings.

I suppose everything points to them struggling early on but who knows. I think it's a great time to be playing them away personally.

Here’s the full picture:

FWIW Estupinan could be a very decent acquisition.  Powerful, good left foot, and very strong attacking crosses.  Bit Les Ferdinand like, helluva leap on him.  Figueiredo is a sensible signing too.

Honeyman was ranked one of the most energetic players in the championship last year.

They are gonna be a mixed bag though.

Ah, Wagstaff and Chilton top players, remember a cracking 3/3 down the Gate late 60s.

I've still got a football annual packed away in the loft (in a box probably not opened in 40 years after numerous moves) where there is a big article on Chris Chilton and Ken Wagstaff. Always remember those two from that annual.

Had a program with both their autographs on the front, Son must still have it.

Seri and Figureido are both decent enough players at Championship level. The rest are unknown quantities and creating a team out of so many new arrivals, especially a few who have arrived relatively late, sounds somewhat unlikely. Lewis-Potter and Honeyman, who were their 2 best players last season have both left, which also suggests that they might struggle.

Who was their goalie in the 5-0 win? I hope he's playing.

If the above is true, then he was the same dodgy keeper who let in 5 at Ashton Gate in the last home game of the season.

Thanks @Jerseybeanappreciate the effort you put into these threads. You must of started to write this one about a week ago. ;)

Well here we go for another season of emotions. I won’t get carried away if we win on Saturday, the same if we lose. I expect if we do lose there will be a few doom merchants but will not be interacting with them will be my new season’s resolution

 

Come on City do us proud. U Reds . OTIB. CAF

People from Hull are referred to as Hullensians.

😂

Thanks @Jerseybean, cracking effort for the opening day.

I hope the Hullensian squad has not had a chance to gel, and that our tight-knit team can use that to its advantage. We of course have alphabetical advantage on opening day, so I'm hopeful of finishing the day in the top half.
