Gaston Ramirez: Uruguayan midfielder determined to achieve success at Hull City

The Uruguay international midfielder joined the Tigers from Southampton late on Monday on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old moved to the Saints from Italian club Bologna in August 2012 but lost his place in the starting line-up last season and started just three league matches while also struggling with injuries.

Having failed to impress new Saints manager Ronald Koeman at the start of the 2014/15 campaign, the former Penarol attacking midfielder has been allowed to go on loan to the KC Stadium.

Ramirez has now stated that he did not hesitate when he heard of Hull's interest and is keen on doing his best for the Premier League club.

"I'm so happy to be here and I'm eager to get started," he told the Tigers' official website.

"I want to show the Hull City fans what I can do. It was a quick decision to sign here once I knew the club were interested. Many people have told me about this area and what a lovely place it is. Also, I know this team is like a family.

"It can sometimes be difficult to have change in your life, but I believe this will be a good season for Hull City and for me. There are many fantastic players here and the manager made some brilliant signings this summer.

"We must all come together now to get results on the pitch and do our best for the fans. It is all about results. We must work hard during the week to be stronger on matchday."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
