Hull City have this last hour confirmed the speculation suggesting we were bringing in Manchester United youngster James Weir.

The 21 year old midfielder comes in for an undisclosed fee having made his way through United’s Academy set up – skippering their Under 21 development squad last season – and he has signed a three year deal at the KCOM Stadium.

He made his senior United bow last season under Louis van Gaal as a substitute in their three two victory over Arsenal and featured on the bench a number of times.

He’s also an England Under 16, 18 and 19 international.

Speaking to the Official Site after signing his new terms, he explained.

‘It`s an important time in my career and I think every player of my age wants to try and start playing regular first team football. I couldn`t be happier to join Hull and really get my career started. The key thing for me is that I can be a regular part of the first team squad here and I hope I can help as the club continues to move forward. I`m just looking forward to cracking on now and getting started here. It will be an exciting time once the international break is over and I can`t wait to meet the rest of the lads.’

With Will Keane being a familiar face and another arrival from United, Weir knows that will help them both settle in.

‘I`ve played with ‘Keano` a few times and he`s a great player. I`m looking forward to linking up with him again.’

As for his style of play and what he thinks he can bring to the club, he added.

‘I can play in a few positions in midfield, which is a good asset of my game. I can play in the centre, off the striker or on the right or left. Hopefully I can contribute with some goals and assists as I like to be creative, but I also don`t mind putting my foot in when needed.’
