Hull City today made a statement of intent way ahead of the January transfer window by sealing a deal to sign an unknown striker to bolster their forward line, in a bid to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.
The player, who, as I already said, is unknown, is said to be a proven goalscorer, though at which level remains to be seen.
For all we know, he might just have bagged a few in the park.
Tigers boss Phil Brown told me earlier:
"All I know is, he's unknown, an unknown quantity, a bit of a dark horse, a shadowy figure stalking us, an eerie presence, and so on and so forth. I just hope to Christ he's better than some of the shite we've already got!"
