Brentford have agreed a deal to sign Hull striker Nick Proschwitz on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old German arrives at Griffin Park on a free transfer with an option to stay for a further two years and becomes the club's second signing of the day following the arrival of Tommy Smith.

Hull paid £2.5million for Proschwitz in 2012 but the former Barnsley loanee has found first-team opportunities hard to come by and Bees boss Mark Warburton is delighted to have acquired his services.

"We have had a long search to find the right striker that offers us quality and a variety of weaponry," he told the club's official website.

"Nick is a very experienced player who put in some fantastic performances in Germany before his move to Hull.

"He is an aerial threat and has very good technical ability who will bring outstanding quality to the squad.

"We are delighted to secure him and look forward to him playing an important part this season."

Proschwitz becomes Brentford's seventh permanent signing of the summer.
