Stelios signs for Hull

Stelios Giannakopoulos joined Premier League new boys Hull City on a permanent contract Monday. The 34-year-old Greek midfielder left top-flight rivals Bolton Wanderers during the close season.

He had been training with Hull as a free agent but has now signed a deal that will keep him at the KC Stadium until the end of the season.

Greek international Giannakopoulos spent five seasons with Bolton before Wanderers manager Gary Megson decided the north-west club could do without him.
