Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom joins Hull City on season-long loan

Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has moved to Hull City on a season-long loan.

Akpom, 19, netted a hat trick for Arsenal against a Singapore Select XI in the Barclays Asia Trophy last month but has been sent out to gain first-team experience with the Championship side for the 2015-16 season.

A statement on the Hull website read: "Akpom, a current England U20 international, joined up with his new teammates this morning and further enhances manager Steve Bruce's attacking options ahead of Saturday's Championship season opener against Huddersfield Town."

The striker has had previous loan spells with Brentford, Coventry City and Nottingham Forest, while Hull also signed defender Isaac Hayden from the Gunners last week.
