Hull City May Bid £1million For Celtic Striker Georgios Samaras When Window Opens

Georgios Samaras Hull City May Bid £1million For Celtic Striker Georgios Samaras When Window Opens

Hull City are preparing a £1million bid for Celtic and Greece striker Georgios Samaras in the hopes of bringing the footballer back to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old 6ft 4in striker previously played at Manchester City and Heerenveen, but his current contract at Celtic is set to expire at the end of this season and there’s a doubt whether Celtic plan on extending it. Although Hull City manager Steve Bruce has downplayed the club’s interest in Samaras, the club are still interested in placing a bid for the quality striker, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

Samaras recently said,

“I don’t know what the next stage of my career will bring. Money has never been a motivating factor in my career because I could have left Celtic and signed for a team with more money. I’ve had offers, most from teams in England, who have offered more money than Celtic.”

For Hull City, a £1million price tag for Samaras would be a bargain for a much-needed position.
