Hull City are delighted to announce the signing of winger David Milinkovic from Italian side Genoa, subject to international clearance.
Milinkovic, 24, has signed a three-year deal with an additional one-year option held by the Club, and arrives for an undisclosed fee.
An exciting wide player operating primarily on the left flank, Milinkovic spent last season on loan with Hearts in the Scottish Premiership where he bagged six goals and contributed five assists in 26 appearances.
Although he was born in France, Milinkovic spent much of his early career playing in Serbia where he has citizenship before moving into Italian football with Genoa in 2016.
The Tigers’ Head Coach Nigel Adkins is looking forward to working with the winger and is pleased to have brought him to the KCOM Stadium. “David is a talented, skilful player and we’re delighted that we’ve been able to bring him to Hull City when we know that a number of other clubs were also looking to sign him,” said Adkins. “He enjoyed a very good loan spell with Hearts last season and he will add a further goal threat
and creativity to our squad.”
Speaking after signing, Milinkovic said: “I am very happy to sign for Hull City and I believe this is a very good opportunity for me. The Championship is a very big league and I am looking forward to training hard every day to be ready to play for this team and this Head Coach.”
