Abel Hernandez has taken to Instagram to confirm his departure from Hull City after a four-year spell at the club. He had a mixed time with the Tigers but the entire chapter has now come to an end with the player ready to move on. This was his message to the fans.

“I am writing to say THANK YOU to all the fans of Hull for these 4 beautiful years, in which they have given me all the affection, during good times and also during the not-so-good ones. You never stopped showing me your great support and affection, and I am deeply grateful. I will never forget the matches in which you singed my name, this is something that I will have forever in my heart.”

“This is why you deserve to know, directly from me, that my time in Hull is now over, everything comes to an end and today I have to say goodbye. Sometimes a fair agreement is not reached, and football is like that. I wish you all the best for the next year, I truly that you can soon return to Premier Ligue because the club deserves it! Thanks to this team, that has given me so many blessings.”

“I want you to know that I love you so much and that you will always be in my heart. Thank you, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart once again for everything you have given me during these four unforgettable years.”

The player is now available on a free transfer and he could be a subject of great interest from multiple English clubs including Newcastle United. He spent a large chunk of the recently concluded season on the sidelines owing to an injury but the player left no one doubting his potential every time he took to the pitch.

He started eight games for the Tigers scoring 8 goals, a stat beyond impressive for a club who finished in the lower half of the table. His record at Hull City makes for an impressive reading as he has scored 28 goals in 49 appearances.

His injury streak saw him lose his spot in the Uruguay national team for the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup kicking off in Russia in a couple of weeks’ time. The forward has struggled with injury ever since his first days at Hull and has had to endure a really tough time in England spending majority of his days on the sidelines with recurring injuries.

Newcastle’s interest in Hernandez goes a long way back when they were looking to make a move for the forward during his days in Italy while playing for Palermo. Newcastle eventually missed out on him to Hull City and brought in Joselu instead. However, the failure to bring in Hernandez was mutual as the forward’s six month long Achilles’ injury made Newcastle lose interest in him, according to the player’s agent.

The player will now be able to join the Magpies who will desperately need as many free players as possible. Their owner Mike Ashley has proven to be a little more than strict with the budget which saw Newcastle sign no new players last year.

However, Benitez did manage to give them a top ten finish and this summer could prove to be a make or break season in terms of keeping the Spanish manager. Should Newcastle fail to get players, they could very well see Benitez head for the exit door. Maybe the club can make him stay by starting off with the signing of Hernandez.
