Hull City have completed the signing of free agent left-back Maynor Figueroa on a two-year deal.
The confirmation comes after weeks of media speculation linking Tigers boss Steve Bruce with the Honduran international, who he first brought to the country whilst manager of Wigan Athletic back in January 2008.
Figueroa, who has 95 international caps, is keen to get started on what he describes as a new challenge.
"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'.”
Figueroa will join up with his new Tigers team-mates when they return for pre-season training in early July.
