JOSH Magennis has signed a two-year deal with Hull City for an undisclosed fee on transfer deadline day.

The Northern Ireland international refused to play in Wanderers’ opening game of the season at Wycombe after his request to terminate the remaining 12 months of his contract was blocked by administrators.

He has now penned a two-year contract with the option of another 12 months at the KCOM Stadium, leaving Phil Parkinson without a single senior striker in his squad after Connor Hall's injury, confirmed earlier this week.

Tigers head Coach Grant McCann said: “Josh’s career has gone from strength to strength and he is a proven international footballer. He can play anywhere across the front three and he is a versatile forward.

“He’s strong, direct and quick and he will add strong competition and physicality to us.”
