It has been some years now since Hull City last broke their transfer record by bringing in a marquee signing. Ryan Mason, who was brought in from Tottenham Hotspur in 2016/17 for a reported fee of £13.8m remains as their record holder, having eclipsed the previous top dog around, Abel Hernandez.
The Uruguayan centre-forward was bought from US Palermo for £10.8m in 2014/15 and is now still their second most expensive signing ever. Behind him, in third place, is Kamil Grosicki, who was transferred for £8.1m in the same season as Mason. Neither, however, are still around at Hull City as Mason has since retired and Grosicki is now part of West Bromwich Albion.
When it comes to transfers away from the club, the Tigers have a couple of deals that are quite impressive, to say the least. Jarrod Bowen’s move to West Ham United for a reported fee of £19.1m in 2019/20 remains as the most expensive piece of business they’ve ever done as a club, both outgoing and incoming.
The young forward eclipsed the previous record holder, Sam Clucas, who was sold to Swansea City for £14.6m back in 2017/18. Interestingly enough, eight out of the top ten sales are more expensive than £10m, showing the club’s good deals over the years.
When talking about the Tigers’ most famous transfers, it’s impossible not to mention Ken Wagstaff, a legend of the years gone by who joined Hull City back in the early ‘60s. The famous striker ended up spending over ten years at the club, bagging goals left and right and even broke the then transfer record when he arrived for £40,000 in 1964.
Among the more modern players, Dean Windass and Ian Ashbee can certainly get a shout as both were transfers that ended up having a huge impact on the club as a whole. Of course, we can’t fail to mention Harry Maguire and Bowen as well, since both warranted a huge transfer fee upon their departure from the club but have also had quite a successful stint with the Tigers as well.
They may not be among the biggest and most famous players to don their colours but have certainly ruffled a few feathers with their respective deals.
