Geovanni: Signed for Hull
Hull City have wrapped up the signing of Brazilian midfielder Geovanni on a free transfer.
Geovanni had been available after being released by Manchester City earlier this week following just one season with the club.
Premier League new boys Hull were quick to express an interest in the 28-year-old and have now clinched the deal.
The former Benfica player has signed a two-year contract at the KC Stadium and has joined his new team-mates at a pre-season training camp in Italy.
Assistant manager Brian Horton told BBC Radio Humberside: "He's got a very good track record, so I think he'll be an excellent signing for us.
"We've heard a lot about him and spoken to quite a few people, but we saw him ourselves so we know the player."
He becomes Hull's second signing of the summer following the £750,000 capture of Craig Fagan from Derby County earlier this week.
Tigers boss Phil Brown is looking to add to his squad ahead of a first campaign in the top flight and is also keen on Stelios Giannakopoulos and Bernard Mendy.
Talks are also ongoing to sign Middlesbrough midfielder George Boateng, who is open to leaving the Riverside this summer.
