Ranocchia is heading to the Premier League
Hull City have agreed a loan deal to bring Inter Milan centre-back Andrea Ranocchia to the KCOM Stadium.
It’s understood the player will have a medical and complete the deal before the window closes at the end of Tuesday.
The defender joined Inter Milan for £10.7m during the January transfer window of 2011 from Genoa, and has since made 166 appearances in all competitions for the 3x European Champions.
He spent half of last season on loan at Sampdoria but is now heading to the Premier League. He is set to become Marco Silva’s 6th Hull signing of this window as they desperately look to swerve relegation this season.
