Abdoulaye Faye: Excited about joining Hull City and believes he can make an impact
Hull City have completed the signing of experienced Senegalese defender Abdoulaye Faye on a free transfer.
The 34-year-old was a free agent after he was released by West Ham at the end of last season.
He has previously enjoyed spells in the Premier League with Bolton, Newcastle and Stoke, and Hull had to fight off competition from other clubs to bring him in.
"I am very happy to be here and to have signed for Hull City. It is a fresh challenge for me, and one that I am greatly looking forward to," Faye told the club's official website.
"Last year I played for West Ham in what was a very strong team that ended up securing promotion.
"Steve Bruce is a great manager with a fantastic record, and when he spoke to me about his ambitions for the club it was easy for me to make up my mind.
"I spent time watching Hull last season and they played very well. We have plenty of talented young players in the squad, and I think I can complement them with my experience."
