Hull FC have confirmed that winger Adam Swift and forward Andre Savelio will both depart the MKM Stadium at the end of the season.

Swift has made 59 appearances for the Black and Whites over the last four seasons since arriving from hometown club St Helens.

The 30-year-old will leave Hull at the end of the season due to family reasons, returning to live in St Helens following the birth of his second child.

Meanwhile, Savelio will also leave FC upon the expiry of his contract, having played 59 games for the club since joining from NRL side Brisbane Broncos in 2019.

“Everyone at the club would like to thank both Adam and Andre for their efforts in Black & White and we look forward to seeing them represent Hull FC for the remainder of the season,” a club statement from Hull read.

Where next for departing Hull FC duo Andre Savelio and Adam Swift?

Earlier this month, Love Rugby League reported that Huddersfield Giants had expressed an interest in signing the Combined Nations All Stars representative for 2024.

And Watson confirmed that interest in Savelio later that week, saying: “He is somebody we’ve looked at. He’s a good player, he’s kind of the right age for us.

“He’s destructive in attack, and he played pretty well last week against us. He carried Oliver Russell nearly 25 metres down the field at one point. He’s somebody who is of interest for us, for definite.”

And Hull Live reported back in June that Swift is set to take up a deal with Huddersfield in 2024 as he makes the move back to his hometown of St Helens for family reasons.

By moving to the Giants, Swift would be able to commute from his St Helens home to training with Huddersfield everyday whereas it’d be a struggle to journey to and from Hull most days.
