Hull City are reportedly poised to sign Cyrus Christie on a free transfer following his departure from Fulham.

The right-back was released by the Cottagers at the end of last season and has since been weighing up his options as a free agent.

Christie, 29, spent time on loan last term in the Championship at Swansea City.

Reporter Will Unwin has claimed on Twitter that he is now ‘set’ to move to the MKM Stadium (see tweet below):

The Republic of Ireland international will link up with former Fulham teammate Jean Michael Seri in East Yorkshire.

Fulham spell

Fulham swooped to sign the full-back back in 2018 and he went on to play 63 times for the London club in all competitions, chipping in with two goals.

He helped the Cottagers win promotion in his first year and again in 2020 before slipping down the pecking order.

Christie spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Nottingham Forest and played 44 times for the Reds before switching to Swansea last term.

He then went on to play 23 times for Russell Martin’s side before being shown the door by Fulham on his return to Craven Cottage.

Hull will now become his home and they are currently 6th in the second tier table.
