Tigers make their third signing of the summer.
Hull City have confirmed that they have signed free agent Tom Ince on a two-year deal after he departed Blackpool at the end of last season, according to the club’s official website.
Ince had been targeted by a number of Premier League clubs recently and had even at one point been tipped to follow in his father’s footsteps and join Inter Milan.
However, following a brief spell on loan at Crystal Palace last term he has elected to stay in the Premier League after meeting with Steve Bruce and is free to join them immediately after his contract with Championship side Blackpool ran down.
The pacy and direct winger came through the youth ranks at Liverpool but, after a short loan spell at Notts County in 2010/11, joined Blackpool on a permanent basis in August 2011.
Last season he bagged himself seven goals in 23 games for the Tangerines, but fell out with the club once his father was relieved of his managerial duties, prompting him to join Palace until the end of the season.
Whilst at Palace he made just eight appearances, and scored just once in a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion.
