Former Bolton defender Josh Emmanuel has joined Hull City after his summer departure from the University of Bolton Stadium.

Emmanuel, who joined Wanderers on an epic transfer deadline day last September, made 31 appearances during his solitary campaign at the club but was left to seek alternative employment after the offer of a new contract was not forthcoming by Football Ventures and Trotters Head Coach Ian Evatt.

The 22-year-old has signed a two-year deal at the KCOM Stadium, with the Tigers having the option of adding a further year.

Speaking to, Hull Head Coach Grant McCann said: "Josh has all the physical tools needed to be a modern day full-back.

"He's tall, strong and is rarely beaten for pace, which also highlights just how good he is in one-on-one situations - both attacking and defensively.

"He is comfortable on the ball, likes to get forward and, once there, can deliver dangerous balls into the box.

"The commitment and desire he has shown to come here and become part of a squad looking to mount a real challenge for promotion has been first class. I'm delighted to have him on board and look forward to working with him during his time at the Club."
