Ah, so now we know why Jozy Altidore is in England. This just in from Jozy’s Twitter feed:
So much for being discreet!
Hull City’s first Premier League match this season is at Chelsea on 15 August. Therefore I conclude that Altidore is about to announce a move to the Tigers. (Chelsea play Man Utd before then in the Community Shield, but somehow I doubt Altidore is moving to Old Trafford.)
Altidore also announced via Twitter that there is press conference tomorrow at 2.30pm, when I expect this announcement to be confirmed by Hull.
Minutes later, Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl (the man who wrote “The Beckham Experiment”) responded with this Tweet:
No reason to doubt any of this. We’ll find out for sure very soon.
Good move for Altidore? Well he wasn’t playing at Villarreal, so I guess it is. Whether or not he gets more playing time at Hull, as Wahl suggests, remains to be seen. I’m not so sure.
PS. Jozy is gonna love Hull’s beautiful climate and culture. Gulp.
