Hull complete triple swoop

Premier League newboys Hull City completed a triple swoop for Plymouth winger Peter Halmosi, Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng and Fulham goalkeeper Tony Warner on Wednesday.

In a frenzied day of transfer activity at the KC Stadium, Hungary international Halmosi agreed a four-year deal to seal his move for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £2 million (2.5 million euros).

That was only the start for Tigers boss Phil Brown as Boateng arrived from Middlesbrough for £1 million (1.2 million euros) on a two-year contract. Completing the trio of new arrivals, former Liverpool stopper Warner joined on a free transfer and put pen to paper on a two-year deal.

"The Tigers have today completed the signings of Peter Halmosi, George Boateng and Tony Warner," a statement on the club's website read.

"The trio all put pen-to-paper this morning to become part of Phil Brown's squad ahead of the club's first-ever campaign in the top-flight of English football."
