Hull announce they missed out on midfielder Yannis Salibur
Hull have failed with their bid to sign Guingamp's Yannis Salibur.
The Tigers appealed to FIFA in an attempt to force through a reported £9million move for the midfielder, following suggest ions the paperwork for the deal was not submitted before the transfer window ended last week.
Hull left a space in their 25-man squad list submitted to the Premier League for the remainder of the season, in the hope Salibur would play a part.
However, world football's governing body ended their hopes of landing the player - according to a short statement from Hull on Twitter.
It read: "We can confirm that our appeal to sanction the transfer of Yannis Salibur from French side @EAGuingamp has been unsuccessful."
