Altidore to play for Premiership's Hull City

Though it's not yet official, several news outlets (and a Twitter feed from the man himself) are reporting that Athletic & Personal Development program alum and U.S. Men's National Team star Jozy Altidore will play for Hull City in the Barclay's Premier League this season.

Currently under contract by La Liga's Villarreal, Altidore's stock shot up this summer with his performance for the USMNT in the Confederations Cup.

Hull started out hot last year, spending the bulk of the first half of the season in the top 10 of the Premiership. The Tigers faded quickly, though, and only avoided relegation on the last day of the season. The team faces a stiff challenge from the start, when Hull faces Chelsea Aug. 15 to open the 2010 season.

During the offseason, Altidore often returns to IMG Academy to train. Check out the video of Jozy training below.
