Jelavic Joins Hull City

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton can confirm that Nikica Jelavic has joined Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

The Croatia striker, 28, was given permission to discuss terms with the Tigers on Friday evening after the two clubs agreed a fee.

He has subsequently agreed a three-and-a-half year contract with the KC Stadium outfit, with the transfer now complete.

His departure is the second piece of major transfer activity at Goodison Park this month, following the Blues’ acquisition of Aiden McGeady at the weekend.

Jelavic had been on Merseyside for almost two years following his switch from Glasgow Rangers in January 2012, quickly becoming a Goodison Park success with 11 goals in 16 games that season.

The 28-year-old scored twice in his final game for Everton, the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Queens Park Rangers, and in total netted 21 times in 69 appearances.
