Newcastle United on trail of relegated Hull City winger – release clause

As reported by the Hull Daily Mail, promoted Newcastle United are hot on the trail of Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki.

Leaning on a report from Polish publication SportoweFakty, the Hull Daily Mail says that Grosicky is a player that Newcastle United “have shown an interest in.”

SportweFakty say that, due to the Tigers relegation from the Premier League, that Grosicki will be on the move this summer. The article goes on to say that “Grosicki will receive a free hand from Hull City CEOs in search of a new employer“, going on to say that this will be due to a relegation clause in Grosicki’s contract that “both parties [have] agreed on this issue already in January.

Grosicki moved to the KCOM from French side Rennes on the final day of the winter transfer window in January, arriving for a fee thought to be in the region of £7.65 million. He’s scored four goals and provided three assists for the French side ahead of his move to English football.

In total Grosicki made 15 Premier League appearances for Hull City as the unsuccessfully battled relegation from English football’s top-tier competition. Whilst he didn’t score for the Tigers, he managed to set up five goals for teammates.

SportoweFakty say that Newcastle United have watched Grosicki and that their ‘sources’ indicate that the impressed Magpies have “clearly stated that they are determined to win the Polish winger in the next transfer window.”

Newcastle already have the nucleus of a side able to compete in the Premier League but will be looking for the nous of Rafa Benitez to add to the squad promoted from the Championship with players who will help the Toon survive in the higher calibre league.
