Hull City have finalised the signing of striker Matty Fryatt from Championship rivals Leicester City for a fee of £1.2million.
Skysports.com revealed earlier in the week that Fryatt had agreed terms with the Tigers and he has now finalised his switch to the KC Stadium.
Fryatt has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with Hull, but will sit out the New Year's Day game against his former club.
Tigers boss Nigel Pearson worked with Fryatt at Leicester and is delighted to have further boosted his attacking options after signing Aaron Mclean from Peterborough United earlier in the week.
"Matty's goalscoring record is pretty good," Pearson told the club's official website.
"He is a predator and he also has the ability to score goals out of nothing. He will give us a slightly different dimension and along with Jay Simpson, who has been in quite good form of late, that gives us some good options.
"We've also got Cameron Stewart, who has been playing through the middle in recent games, Nick Barmby, Mark Cullen and Richard Garcia when he's fit.
"It's good that we do have different options to choose from."
