Alefe Santos: Set to join Hull City

Hull have been chasing Santos for a number of months, but they have been unable to strike a deal with Rovers for the teenager.

But with the 19-year-old out-of-contract at the Memorial Stadium, Hull have been able to agree personal terms with the Sao Paulo-born winger.

Santos is now set to move to the KC Stadium, although a transfer tribunal will decide on the compensation that Rovers are due - as the player is under 23.

Santos began his career in England as a schoolboy with Stoke City, before joining Rovers in 2011. He made his debut for the club in 2012, before becoming a regular in their side last season - which saw them relegated to the Conference.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
