Hull sign Levy Nzoungou from Salford

Hull have announced the signing of prop Levy Nzoungou from Salford on a two-year deal.

Nzoungou, 20, had spells at both St Helens and Melbourne at academy level and also turned out for Toulouse.

The Congo-born forward has featured for Oldham, Whitehaven and Swinton on loan too.

He said: “I’ve come to Hull FC to settle down, work hard and make the most of the opportunity.

“I have had good experience at a number of clubs so far, but I would like to come here and stay for as many years as possible and become a key part of the team.

“It is a great club and everyone has been very welcoming.

“Lee has explained the opportunity for me here and how to have a spot in the squad, so I am going to work hard for it and I am determined to do well.”

Hull’s pack now has a unique multi-national feel, with Nzoungou joining Zimbabwean Masimbaashe Matongo, Tongans Sika Manu and Mickey Paea, Italian-Australian Mark Minichiello and recent signing Lewis Bienek, who is of Polish descent.

Coach Lee Radford said: “I’m really excited to work with Levy because I think he’ll be a great player with the right time and investment.

“The reserves will give him a good opportunity to play consistent rugby league next season, which will hopefully help in his development to push for a regular place in the first team.

“He adds more valuable depth to our squad and is one to watch.”
