Curtis Davies signs for the Tigers on a three-year deal.
Hull City continue to strengthen their squad ahead of the forthcoming return to the Premier League by announcing the capture of Birmingham City centre-back Curtis Davies on a three-year contract.
Davies arrives at the KC Stadium with a host of top flight experience in England having previously played for both Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion.
“I feel that I’m joining Hull City at an exciting time and the chance to play in the Barclays Premier League was also a huge attraction,” the 28-year-old told Hull’s website.
“It’s something that I’ve been lucky enough to do before and I wanted to get back to that level.
“Hopefully I can help this team to have a good season and push as high up the table as possible.”
The defender has represented England at under-21 level and has also been called up to senior squad in the past, although has never earned a full cap and is eligible to play for Sierra Leone as well.
The former Villa man will join Peterborough’s George Boyd and Maynor Figueroa of Wigan as new signings at the Tigers, with Steve Bruce attempting to build-up a squad capable of competing in the English top tier.
Hull are returning to the Premier League after a three year absence, last competing at the level between 2008 and 2010, when Bruce led the side to second in the Championship last year.
They will be vying for survival next season alongside fellow new boys Cardiff City and Crystal Palace, with many critics saying the Yorkshire club have the best set-up of the three to avoid the drop.
