Hull have completed the signing of Senegal international striker Dame N'Doye from Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old, who scored 27 goals in 66 games for Lokomotiv, has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal, with the option of a further year.
N'Doye recently played for Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations.
"He will undoubtedly strengthen our squad and add a significant goal threat," said Hull boss Steve Bruce.
"I'm delighted to have completed the signing of Dame and I'm looking forward to seeing him in action for us."
The Tigers are the joint second lowest scorers in the Premier League this season with 20 goals from 23 games.
Hull vice-chairman Ehab Allam said: "It's taken us three weeks and we almost missed the deadline so it's been fantastic news to get it over the line.
"It's just been a long day of negotiations, very stressful. It's broken down on several occasions but Steve was in France with the player and he managed to get it over the line."
