After the Nikica Jelavic signing, I will look at the Tiger's 5 most expensive players at the time.
1. Tom Huddlestone - £5.25mil
This player has definitely justified his switch to Hull. The one time England international has really proved his place in the side since signing from Spurs. He has been an ever present figure in the Tiger's side since his move from North London. A constant performer and dictator in midfield. Some may suggest Hull got off lightly after signing the former Derby man.
2. Jimmy Bullard - £5mil
Phil Brown took a massive risk signing the controversial star. At the time, City needed some Premier League class to add to their team but Bullard didn't exactly help the relegation threatened side. Throughout his time at the side he was mostly sidelined with a recurring knee injury. At times, he did show glimpses of why the Tiger's paid such a hefty sum. A hot tempered argument occurred during a summer training cam in Slovenia and his contract was immediately terminated. He recently retired after finishing his career off at MK Dons.
3. Anthony Gardner - £2.5mil
He was originally signed on a season-long loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur but the Tiger's decided to sign him on a regular basis. The former England international showed glimpses of why he once was capped by the national side. He was very injury prone but did make a respectable 35 appearances in the black and amber. He then moved onto Crystal Palace on loan before signing permanently. He currently plays in the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday.
4. Peter Halmosi - £2mil
The Hungarian signed for Hull for the up and coming Premier League season. He showed what he was capable at Championship level with Plymouth Argyle. He didn't particularly justify the price tag as he rarely played. He played 27 times but barely started and mostly came off the bench. He then moved onto Hungarian outfit Haladas, where today he still plies his trade.
5. Caleb Folan - £1mil
This was the Tiger's first ever £1 million man. He was recruited to add attacking prowess and to supply help to the already established strikers Fraizer Campbell and Dean Windass. The former Ireland international scored a mere 12 goals in 64 games, but most notably scored the winner against Fulham in Hull's first ever Premier League game. He then moved onto Colorado Rapids in the USA. He was most recently at Bradford City, but was released earlier this season.
