Very recently announced as Hull City’s latest signing of the summer transfer window, the decision to sign for Leonard Slutsky’s side appears to have been a last minute, even last second, move.
For all intents and purposes, the Sweden international should have been a Levante player this summer, having agreed to a €15m release clause the La Liga side.
This is what Super Deporte are claiming on Wednesday, stating they have managed to get hold of an extract of this initial agreement, which apparently has ‘full validity as a contract that binds the parties and especially the player as a professional footballer’.
However, without the signature of the official contract and the signature of La Liga officials, the move was never completed.
Thankfully for Larsson, it seems that Levante aren’t all that mad about the whole thing, as Super Deporte explain the Valencia based outfit ‘will not make a legal claim’.
The reason behind this is that, despite Larsson having passed a medical, Levante had a feeling the player would snub them for over a week, despite his agent’s assurances his client preferred La Liga.
It seems Hull City have pulled off quite a coup here by bringing him to KCOM Stadium, signing the former Sunderland player on a one-year deal on Wednesday.
