Hull City have completed the £3million signing of Seyi Olofinjana from Stoke City and agreed a loan deal for Jozy Altidore.
Olofinjana has opted to sign a four-year contract at the KC Stadium after turning down the chance to join French outfit Monaco.
He only joined the Potters last summer from Wolves, but struggled to command a first-team spot in Tony Pulis' side in the second half of last season.
Pulis admitted on Wednesday that he would be strengthening a Premier League rival by selling Olofinjana to Hull, but he did not want to hinder the Nigerian's career.
Tigers boss Phil Brown has also continued his recruitment drive by bringing in Altidore, subject to the United States international receiving a work permit.
Altidore joins on loan for the season from Villarreal with the option for the striker to secure a permanent deal with the Tigers.
