As Hull City striker Oscar Estupinan is on his way to Metz, the South Americna media continues to bring more details on this transfer.

Journalist Cesar Luis Merlo writes on Twitter that the player is on his way to France for the medicals.

It’s claimed that Hull City’s initial intention was to sell the player on a outright deal, but that isn’t happening.

So Metz are set to sign Estpuinan on a loan, for which they’ll pay €2m. Then they’ll have an option to buy him for €4m.

According to Merlo, that’s a done deal.

Estupinan leaves Hull City after just one year, as he arrived last summer on a free transfer from Vitoria Guimarães.

In his first year with the Tigers, he had 13 goals and one assist in 37 appearances. Since the start of the 2023/24 season, he had one goal in five appearances.

Hull City seemed pretty interested in having him sold, especially because they’re making some quick profit with a player who arrived for free. Now we shall see whether Metz will get convinced to buy him next summer.
