Tigers snap up Hungary striker Balogh

Hull have signed Hungary striker Norbert Balogh on a 12-month contract.

Balogh, 6ft 6in, became a free agent in June after his contract with Palermo expired and had been on trial with the Tigers.

“The 23-year-old has penned a one-year deal, with a further year’s option in the club’s favour, after impressing head coach Grant McCann during a successful trial period,” Hull said.

Balogh progressed through Debrecen’s academy and was signed by Italian club Palermo for £2million in January 2016.

He has made two senior appearances for Hungary and spent last season on loan at Cypriot champions APOEL Nicosia.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
