Bruce To Graham: You're The One For Me, Fatty

Stu Forster

All over Hull City, some hope and some despair. Oh, you're the one for me, fatty. You're the one I really, really love...

Sunderland's misfiring striker Danny Graham has clinched a season-long loan move to Hull City, where he will link up with former Sunderland manager Steve Bruce, along with David Meyler, Ahmed Elmohamady and Paul McShane.

The striker, who failed to hit the net in 11 games for Sunderland, and in all honesty never really looked like doing so. His loss isn't one that will be felt at all on Wearside, except perhaps Nando's and Mama's in Newbottle.

Graham issued the standard pleasantries upon signing;

It's exactly the same as when I joined Swansea a couple of years ago, a club coming up into the Premier League. The stories for the two clubs are very similar.

I know I'm coming to a good club with a top manager, a fantastic stadium and some very good players.

When the chance came to sign here on loan, I jumped at it.

Perhaps the only thing worth noting is that it's widely expected among those in the know that Sunderland will not be looking to replace Graham, and seem perfectly happy to enter the season with Stephane Sessegnon, Ji Dong-Won, Jozy Altidore, Connor Wickham and Steven Fletcher.

If by some bizarre turn of events Sunderland fancy bringing him back, they can do in January 2014. Hull also have an option to buy at the end of the season.

At least he can't score against us, as would have been inevitable had the move been made permanent.
