Jordan Rankin has become Hull FC's seventh close-season signing after joining the Super League club from the Gold Coast Titans on a two-year contract.

The 21-year-old playmaker will be reunited, subject to visa clearance, with half back and former Titans team-mate Jacob Miller who joined the East Yorkshire club last season.

Hull are believed to have beaten off competition from the Brisbane Broncos, St George Illawarra and two other unnamed English clubs to land Rankin's signature.

Rankin knows the size of the KC Stadium club after seeing the team reach the Tetley's Challenge Cup final in August and he is now looking to stamp his own mark on Lee Radford's team.

"It's going to be a great opportunity for me to improve my own game and not many people know me over there in England, so it's a chance for me to start afresh and play my own brand of footy."

Big move

"It's a big move from the Gold Coast but I'm looking forward to the opportunity and to the challenge of playing in the Super League," said the pacey stand-off to the club's official website.

"We get the Super League over in Australia and I saw Hull reach the Challenge Cup final last year. Unfortunately, they got beat but they are one of the top teams in the competition and I wouldn't be going over there unless it was to a quality team with quality coaching and quality players around me.

"I spoke to the management and they were really keen to get me over there in the team and I've got a good mate in Jake playing over there too.

"It's going to be a great opportunity for me to improve my own game and not many people know me over there in England, so it's a chance for me to start afresh and play my own brand of footy.

"I'm sure that if I play the way I intend to play, with the coaching staff that we have around me and the likes of Mickey Paea to play behind, we can test the competition pretty strongly and I'm really looking forward to it."
