Championship champion Seri joins City

Hull City are delighted to announce the signing of experienced midfielder Jean Michaël Seri on a three-year contract, subject to obtaining a work permit.

The 30-year-old becomes our latest summer signing having just helped Fulham secure promotion back to the Premier League as champions.

Capped 42 times for Ivory Coast, Seri has made over 300 career appearances, with 65 of those coming over a four-year spell with the Cottagers, which included loan spells at Galatasaray and Bordeaux.

The deep-lying playmaker’s best season at Craven Cottage came last time out as he helped Fulham secure the Championship title, as he made 33 appearances before signing off with a long-range strike in a 7-0 win against Luton Town.

Before joining Fulham in 2018, Seri spent three years at Nice in Ligue 1, making over 100 appearances, as well as being named as their Player of the Year in 2017.

With experience of playing in Portugal, France, Turkey and England under his belt, Seri will now join up with the rest of Shota Arveladze’s squad as preparations continue for the 2022/23 campaign.
