Chelsea have agreed to sell Xavier Simmons to Championship side Hull City on a permanent move.

Simmons has been on loan at Hull City this season. A deal was almost finalized on the deadline day of the January transfer window to convert the move into a permanent one. However, Hull City missed the deadline.

Both Chelsea and Hull City officials are working on striking a deal for Simmons to make the move permanent. Eventually, the deal is almost completed ahead of the summer window.

As reported by Nizar Khilafi and Hull Live, a transfer fee has been agreed and the player looks eager to join the club. Despite, the 20-year-old has made only four appearances for Liam Rosenier’s team this season.


Speaking to Hull Live, Simmons stated:-

“Liam’s been open to me and said how much he wants me here at the club moving forwards.

“I see the project, and I believe in it, and that’s to get us back in the Premier League.

“I want to play a part in that. It’s between both clubs now to sort things out, when that is I don’t know, but I’m ready whenever.”

However, Simmons further added:-

“Yes, of course. I want to be here, I want to get the club back in the Prem and it’s between the two clubs now.

“You could say it’s a brave move. The situation with Chelsea, I don’t really see a pathway there for me now, and coming here is men’s football at an amazing club playing football the way I want to play, so my development, it’s going to be amazing.

“The ambition for where the club is going to be is where I want to be.”

The Final agreement will be soon agreed in the coming weeks.
