ARSENAL striker Chuba Akpom has become Hull City’s latest capture after completing a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old becomes the second Gunners player to sign on at the KC Stadium following midfielder Isaac Hayden’s arrival on loan earlier in the week.

Akpom, who recently netted a hat-trick for the Premier League giants against a Singapore Select XI at the Barclays Asia Trophy, is Steve Bruce’s fourth signing of the summer as the preparations continue ahead of the new season.

The teenager trained with his team-mates earlier today at Bishop Burton and could make his debut against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

There could be a player heading out of Hull as well with Senegalese striker Dame N’Doye moving a step closer to a move to Turkish side Trabzonspor.
