Josh Magennis has left Bolton Wanderers. He’ll be best remembered for the time he left Bolton Wanderers.
Magennis has completed a move to Hull. on the day that the transfer window closed for Championship clubs. He’ll be managed by fellow Northern Irishman Grant McCann.
The striker joined last summer from Charlton but after a very good start, his season, just like the club’s fortunes as a whole, took a nose dive. He scored against QPR in mid-September and failed to score in the league again, his only other goals after that coming in an FA Cup hat-trick against Walsall.
He may have been an asset in League One for us this season, having previously reached double figures in this league, but refused to play last weekend. Things were heated with Phil Parkinson, and the travelling support at Adams Park made their feelings known about Magennis during the game at Wycombe. From there, he was evidently never playing for the club again, so to get some money for him will do nicely.
Enjoy him, Hull fans.
It does mean our most senior striker now is Connor Hall, but there is still three and a half weeks until our window closes. The takeover might even get done by then…
