Hull add Senegal striker Dame N'Doye at transfer deadline
Hull's survival bid received a much-needed shot in the arm as they signed Senegal striker Dame N'Doye from Lokomotiv Moscow.
N'Doye, 29, signed a two-and-a-half-year deal, with a club option for an additional 12 months.
Steve Bruce made signing a striker his priority this month after watching his side slip to third from bottom in the Premier League.
The Tigers have the second-worst scoring record in the division and the Hull boss will be looking to N'Doye to supply the goals to keep the club in the top flight.
A tweet from the club, posted in the early hours of Tuesday morning, read:
TRANSFER: We are delighted to confirm the signing of Senegal international striker Dame N'Doye from Lokomotiv Moscow for an undisclosed fee- Hull City Official (@HullCity) February 3, 2015
Given that the transfer was completed after midnight, Hull had to submit a deal sheet to ensure it went through.
N'Doye, who turns 30 in three weeks' time, had been at Lokomotiv Moscow for three years.
The striker's previous clubs include Academica de Coimbra, OFI Crete, Panathinaikos and FC Copenhagen.
