United’s Managing Director Mal Brannigan has told the Club’s Official webste:-

“We made it clear that we wanted Harry to stay by offering him a new contract at the end of last season, [but] unfortunately he and his representatives chose a different path,” 

“However, as he is under contract at Bramall Lane, we exercised our right to set our own valuation of him and after numerous bids which did not meet our expectations, Hull City increased their offer and we have reluctantly accepted.

“As we have previously stated, Sheffield United are not under pressure to sell our players but on this occasion it was deemed the best for all parties and now we move on with the aim of assisting Nigel Clough to strengthen his squad.”

23rd July Wednesday –  Sone Aluko and Yannick Sagbo gave Hull City a 2-0 win over York City as the Tigers continued their warm up for the new season.

With recent recruits Tom Ince, Robert Snodgrass and Jake Livermore all featuring at Bootham Crescent, the visitors were made to work hard by their League Two hosts.

However, Aluko and Sagbo struck after the interval to break York’s stubborn resistance and settle matters.

Hull were largely matched by their Yorkshire counterparts in the first half, although Robbie Brady went close to opening the scoring when his early effort was disallowed after the ball had curled out of play.

Boss Steve Bruce opted to ring the changes at the break, including introducing Livermore and Ince from the bench.

And within five minutes, the Premier League side were ahead as Aluko picked the ball up outside the area and beat Michael Ingham from 25 yards.

The Northern Irish goalkeeper may feel he could have done better with the shot, but York almost responded immediately when new signing Jake Hyde tested Allan McGregor.

Ince could have made it 2-0 when he was put through one-on-one, only to fire straight at Ingham, but  Sagbo made no such mistake as he punished a defensive error with a cool finish 13 minutes from time.
