Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki has revealed how close he was to leaving the Tigers over the summer to Polish media, as per an article from the Hull Daily Mail.
The Poland international has revealed his frustration with his agents for not getting him a move out of the Championship. He says he was close to joining Premier League sides West Brom and Crystal Palace, but moves did not materialise. He apparently also agreed to join Italian side Fiorentina, but Grosicki does not understand why a move did not happen.
Grosicki, 29, joined the East Yorkshire club in January from Rennes in the French Ligue 1. He has scored twice in 20 matches and could not prevent Hull from being relegated from the Premier League last season. He is currently 6 months into his 3 and a half year deal. He is said to be frustrated at not leaving the Championship, but insists he will respect Hull and their fans and perform to the best of his ability for the Tigers.
Hull boss Leonid Slutsky will be pleased they have kept hold of Grosicki. The Russian has signed 12 players since joining in the summer. These include players like Fraizar Campbell, Michael Hector and Jackson Irvine. Keeping Grosicki is a bonus for Hull as many of their fans expected him to be first out of the door following relegation.
It will be interesting to see how good the Poland international will be for Hull in the Championship now he is no longer in th shop window, until January.
