Newly promoted English Premiership side, Hull City has freed Nigerian born international Sone Aluko days after the club gained promotion for the 2016/17 league season.
During his last days in the team, Aluko only featured for the first of the Tigersâ€™ play-offs away at Derby County but has since not been included in Steve Bruceâ€™s line up for the return leg and final.
An official statement released on the clubâ€™s website, Vice Chairman of the board, Ehab Allam thanked the Nigerian for his time at the club.
â€œI would also like to take this opportunity to thank both Sone Aluko and Ryan Taylor for their efforts and wish them both well for their future careers,â€ Allam told the clubâ€™s website.
The 27-year-old striker made 108 appearances for the club and netted 15 goals in all four years of his stay at the KCOM Stadium but only managed to score three times in 31 appearances for Bruceâ€™s side this past season.
