SET­BACK IS HELL FOR HULL ACE DIO

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Joshua Richards

THE KC Sta­dium faith­ful are yet to get a glimpse of their £1.7m sum­mer sign­ing, but Adama Diomande has promised the Hull City sup­port­ers it will be worth the wait.

The 25-year-old joined Hull last month, but has al­ready been forced out for six weeks to have a groin op­er­a­tion.

But although he ad­mits it has been frus­trat­ing on his ar­rival to a new coun­try, the Nor­we­gian for­ward has promised to make a big im­pact when he is fi­nally ready to be un­leashed.

“I am suited to the English game,” said Diomande, who joined from Stabaek. “It is al­most like the Nor­we­gian game. There are more high­pro­file play­ers here than in the Nor­we­gian league but when you see Nor­we­gians come over they are very good.

“It has been very frus­trat­ing be­ing out. Football is my life so it’s not the same when you are just watch­ing.

“It’s not al­ways a good start to make but I have signed for three years and I’m very pa­tient about my stay here.

“I will be 100 per cent fit when I come back.”

WAIT: Adama Diomande
