Hull Striker Could Soon Arrive At His Dream Club – Newcastle


It looks like Hull City’s Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez might not end the transfer window as a Hull City player.

It seems that Hull City’s hectic preparation to the season, when manager Steve Bruce resigned because of lack of signings,  has caused the Uruguayan International to rethink his future.

But that didn’t stop them beating Champions Leicester City 2-1 at home on Saturday – the first time the reigning Champions had lost their first game of the following season.

Abel Hernandez – 26 year-old Hull City striker

The news is that both Newcastle United and Aston Villa are said to be interested in the striker and have even put bids in for the 27 times capped Uruguayan International (11 goals).

West Brom are said to be looking at him as a possible replacement for Saido Berahino, should he leave before the end of August.

The 26-year-old has given an interview to Ovacion Digital and he was asked if he would still be a Hull City player when September comes around:

“The truth is I don’t know where I’ll end up playing this season. I’m a bit concerned about what’s going here in Hull, that we still don’t have a manager and we don’t have a big squad.”

“We have many injuries and many youngsters. While Mike Phelan is currently here, we don’t know if he will stay.”

Abel scored 20 goals in 39 league appearances last season for the Tigers, so he can score goals in the Championship, which is just what Newcastle need at the moment and at 6ft 1ins tall, he’s a fairly big striker.

And Hernandez had this to say about the two big clubs currently in the Championship that are reportedly interested in him:

“They are two clubs who have interesting projects and are working well.”

Newcastle have been linked with Hernandez before – and it was back in February, 2014 that he made this statement in Gazzetta dello Sport while he was still at Palermo:

“I dream of Newcastle, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid for the future,” 

“Last summer I decided to stay because I owned it to Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini and the fans.”

He joined Hull City in the summer of 2014 for £10M on a three year contract and since then he has scored 26 goals in 73 appearances for the Tigers.

He could even get his move to one of his dream clubs in the next two weeks and that’s not in sunny Madrid.

    Wouldn’t mind him as he know’s where the goal is, but he’s another smaller goal poacher rather than a target man

    Calling it now, Rafa will get it right and we will get promoted this season. Just need time to gel, get the system/tactics right, and the players to show what they are made of, stop all this talking and take action and show we mean business.

    My dream clubs, you ask? Either of the Madrid Clubs and of course English Championship giants NUFC. Can’t see any flaws in that at all.

    I think so JamesToon but it’s going to be tough getting there. May even have a playoff scrap to look forward to if we lose too much ground at the start.

    Very good recap – worthy of a laugh.
    Needless to say Jib Jibberish eroneously believes I was talking about him – when clearly I wasn’t.
    AND I get a load of foul abuse and general abuse as a result.
    Jib Jibberish – I do think you owe an apology old chap -for wrongly accusing me of accusing you, accusing me……….etc etc.

    Waiting for players to gel.
    Players do need time to get to know one anothers game – undisputable fact.
    However, if we are waiting for some unispiring/bang average players to gel into a record breaking team we are going to be waiting a long time – with our current squad.
    Again attacking midfielder and two forwards (who know where the net is) are needed or we will fail this seasons objective.

    Yes I concur regarding team quality atm. I am of the opinion/hope that this is by no means Rafas top pick going forward, more muddle through with the temporary situation kind of thing.

    I observe Ian Toons latest slithering malign was to equate my speculation/caveats/reservations going forward (all only what if and general conjecture of course) to my being one of the “Boo Boys”, followed again by his inexplicable offerings of unrequited love for his muse Belfast. He’s a strange fish, that one.

    This guy would do us fine. Better than most of the other suggestions. Get him in pdq.
    Then its just the LB and creative mid problem.

    No thanks for this guy. Much rather we go for danny ings and that anderlecht winger we were linked with a few weeks ago, Acheampong his name is from what I can remember.

    Ugh, so depressing being where we are in the table right now! From being the worst in the premier league to one of the worst in the championship. Honestly if we lose to reading were going to have to start questioning Rafa surely?

    Young Mag From Burnley, last thread:

    I think most of the posters here on the blog will wipe the slate clean as you’ve apologised when others in your position might have just created another ID and reinvented their internet persona.
    To the rest of the blog, can we give this young lad a break and just accept his apology and move on? I can barely remember being 18 but know that I made my fair share of mistakes along the way, and i’m thankful that there was no interwebnet back then, or iPhones as I’d be forever embarrassed from nights out in Legends and Walkers…

    Thanks man, appreciated. I don’t mind other posters having a negligent approach when concerning me, I brought that upon myself. I have however moved on from who I was, my only concern on here now is to wipe the slate clean and to discuss NUFC, those who don’t give me another chance(which is completely understandable) will hopefully just let me interact with posters who have given me another chance.

    Rob……. There’s no problem with your slate being wiped clean ( At least I hope not! ) However you should stop the Belfats stuff and leave Belfast in peace. He’ll probably get over you if you let him .

    Sorry Wayayman but that’s his public face, right after your conciliatory post he’s back on as “Belfats”. Sorry mate but he’s a lost cause and he knows it.

    Yo-Yo – I concur – Tolkien’s Wormtongue is not only better but my mental vision of Ian is Brad Dourifs portrayal of him ha ha.

    A poor start to the season, pre season hype of new signings like Hayden who let’s be fair couldn’t get into hull’s team. Rafa insisting on Anita as a RW, overall poor tactics and selections. Instead of controlling the game as rafa wants we should be concentrating on attacking and dominating.

    Rafa needs to pick his best players and stick to it, Gayle looks as I thought, poor!! Hopefully we get Hernandez but I keep saying…..go all out for Knockaert and forresteri

    Oh it just gets even better doesn’t it? So I’m now ‘belfats’? And now I’m guessing Belfats is the same person as ‘take a chancel on me’ and ‘toon from Leeds’? It’s like a way less interesting version of Scrooby doo, the one where you have wannabe detectives trying to decipher a rather unfortunate mystery even though they are way off the mark… Again!! I’m not belfats, what else can I say? That’s a new one though for sure. Didn’t realise you guys talked about me whilst I’m not on.

    Just get on with posting now, but don’t insult people’s intelligence when we know what’s going on.

    What evidence???????? I haven’t even been on!! Only on match days and days that I have nothing better to do. I have missed where you have all discovered this massive secret. Is Belfast head detective then? Did he just take it upon himself to try and figure this out? Well he should be sacked, because he’s got it wrong. Horribly. Ive told you who I previously was and that’s that.
