Hull have completed the signing of Chelsea defender Michael Hector on a season-long loan.
Michael Hector joined the Blues from Reading in August 2015 but has yet to make his debut for the Premier League champions.
He was loaned back to the Reading in 2015-16 before spending last season with German side Eintracht Frankfurt.
He could make his Tigers debut against Aston Villa on Saturday, 6 August.
A Jamaican international, he has been capped 12 times by his country and was included in the Reggae Boyz’s 2015 Copa America squad.

Speaking after completing his temporary switch to the Tigers at the Club’s University of Hull Training Ground, Hector said: “When I found out that Hull were interested in taking me on loan, it was an easy decision to make.
“It’s a great challenge for me to come back to England after a season in Germany and try to help this Club get back into the Premier League.
“The players here seem like a great bunch and hopefully I can play my part in helping them – and the Club – enjoy a successful season in 2017/18.”
