Hull City have completed the signing of goalkeeper George Long from Championship rivals Sheffield United.

The 24-year-old joins for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year deal, with a further year option.

The deal allows the former England Under-20 goalkeeper to reunite with Hull boss Nigel Adkins, who he played under for one season at Bramall Lane.

"I've played under the head coach before, so that was a big factor in me coming here," said Long.external-link
