The club can now confirm that Ben Amos has officially joined the Tigers on a season-long loan deal from Manchester United.

Amos is a talented, young goalkeeper who has been capped by England at youth and Under-21 level.

The tall, Macclesfield-born custodian has worked his way through the Old Trafford ranks since the age of 11, and joined the club's Academy in July 2006. He quickly established himself in Paul McGuinness' Under-18s side in the 2006/07 campaign, and made his Reserves debut in November 2007.

His stature within the United ranks was underlined when he made two impressive appearances in the first team's 2008/09 pre-season campaign, and a full debut wasn't long in coming. Amos turned in a commanding display as United overcame Middlesbrough in the Carling Cup in September 2008.

Having convinced United's coaching staff that he has the skill and temperament for first team football, Amos was picked as a late replacement for the injured Ben Foster to travel as part of the successful Club World Cup campaign.

Sir Alex Ferguson has shown faith in Amos, promoting him to the third-choice position when Ben Foster joined Birmingham City and, in the 2011/2012 campaign, he appeared in the Carling Cup victories over Leeds and Aldershot, underlining his obvious potential and the trust placed in him by the boss. A Premier League debut, against Stoke, followed and he also made 14 appearances for the Reserves.
