Hull FC sign Castleford utility back Ryan McGoldrick

Hull FC have signed utility back Ryan McGoldrick from Castleford on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old handed in a transfer request earlier this week.

Prior to confirming the signing boss Peter Gentle told BBC Radio Humberside: "I coached Ryan a long time ago back in Australia and I had a good relationship with him.

"We are becoming a bit light and it's a chance for us to have a look and see if we want to give him a longer deal."
