Altidore Heads To Hull

Not much made of this move today but I'm going to highlight it because I'm a fan of the player involved. Jozy Altidore has joined Hull on a season-long deal loan from Villarreal. Though ineffective in his time in Spain, Altidore is a promising player. He's scored seven goals from his 16 appearances with the American national team, not bad for a 19 year old.

Here he is against Spain in the Confederations Cup semi-final:

This is a great move for Hull because I believe he's a player with great potential. I think he could be a bargain at £6.5m at the end of the season. One to keep an eye out for, and maybe a potential fantasy football sleeper.


  1. Hi,

    Great articles all around.

    I recently started a blog about sports news and I came across your blog in my research. Your articles are great! I added myself as follower and commented on a few. I was wondering if you could check mine out as well and pass it along to anyone you know. And any start-up tips or ideas you may want to share on how to get more exposure and traffic, let me know!.

    Thanks a lot,

  2. I'm really intrigued by Altidore. Normally you would never see an athlete this physically talented from the US play soccer. Most people with his ability would be playing baseball or American football. It'll be interesting to see how he develops.
