Hull City: Tigers make another signing

Jackson Irving

With just 24 hours to the transfer window closing Hull City have made their second signing of the week, capturing  Burton Albion midfielder Jackson Irvine for an undisclosed fee.

Irvine, a 24-year-old Australian international, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal which also

includes the option of an additional year.

Born in Melbourne, Irvine moved to the UK to join Celtic’s youth set-up in 2010 and played for Ross

County before joining Burton just over 12 months ago. Since then, he has scored 11 times in 49 appearances for the Brewers, including a fine strike against the Tigers at the KCOM Stadium earlier this month.

Irvine is delighted to become the latest addition to Leonid Slutsky’s squad in East Yorkshire, saying: “I couldn’t be happier and I’m just excited to be starting the next chapter of my career. It has all happened relatively quickly, but once I found out about the interest from Hull City it was an easy decision even though leaving Burton was difficult in its own way.

“I just can’t wait to get started now.”
