Hull have completed the signing of French defender Bernard Mendy on a free transfer.
Mendy has inked a three-year deal at the Premier League new boys after seeing out his contract at Paris Saint Germain.
The 26-year-old worked with Tigers boss Phil Brown during a successful loan spell with Bolton in 2003 and he has admitted Brown played a big part in his decision to move to the KC Stadium.
Impressed"The sporting project is ambitious and interesting," Mendy told L'Equipe. "I'm happy to go back to England.
"And above all I'll be meeting up again with Phil Brown, who was the assistant coach at Bolton when PSG loaned me out there. That counted a lot."
Mendy is Hull's third signing of the summer as they prepare for their first adventure in England's top flight.
