Hull sign Maynor Figueroa

Hull City have today announced the signing of former Wigan Athletic left back Maynor Figueroa on a free transfer.

The Honduran International left the DW Stadium after their relegation from the Premier League last season and moves to his new side on a two-year contract.

Figueroa, 30, has featured under manager Steve Bruce before, after the former Manchester United Captain signed him for the Latics in 2008 from Deportivo Olimpia for a fee of around £500,000.

The full back is the Tigers second signing of the summer following forward George Boyd joining the club on a free transfer from Peterborough United.

In an interview with the Hull City Official website, Figueroa stated:

"I'm happy to be here and to be a part of the club."

"It is a big challenge for me, but it's certainly one I'm looking forward to."

" When the team were playing the final few games in the Championship, I paid close attention to the results because I wanted Steve Bruce to achieve promotion."

"I was happy for him to earn the success. He is a great manager, and I'm looking forward to working with him again."

"I watched the Cardiff game, and after the final whistle, I turned to my wife and said, 'Hull could be an option for me next year'."
