Hull FC duo Jordan Lane and Kieran Buchanan have signed new two-year deals.

Lane has signed a two-year contract extension with his hometown club after making his debut against Leeds Rhinos in March.

The 20-year-old has played seven games in Super League so far this season and has impressed whenever he has been given the chance by coach Lee Radford.

Meanwhile, centre Buchanan has penned his first full-time deal with the club, keeping him at the Black and Whites until the end of the 2020 season.

The 19-year-old has been promoted to the first team squad after starring in the City of Hull Academy Under-19s.

On the new deals, Radford said: “We have signed two players who know exactly how to conduct themselves, which is impressive considering their relatively young age in the squad.

“Both players are having great seasons to date. They’re just getting their heads down and doing what they need to do. They both deserve the contracts they’ve been rewarded with.

“I think as a club we are getting close to where we want to be at. We’ve now got 18 homegrown players in our first team and if we can continue winning trophies, that will be absolutely outstanding.”

Lane said: “It’s massive to sign a new deal with my hometown club, the team that I’ve supported growing up, and it makes me really happy to know my short-term future is secured.

“I’m really enjoying playing in Super League at the moment. It’s hard and it’s physical. But I’m learning a lot of lessons every week and that’s what I’m enjoying.”

Buchanan said: “I’m really excited because Hull FC has always been my club.

“I’ve always been a supporter, ever since I was a young kid, so I’m looking forward to getting on board.

“Danny Wilson and Jason Netherton at the City of Hull have been helping me develop for a couple of years and they’ve been a massive help to me.

“I hope that I can develop my value in the squad down the years. I’m a centre, so it will be great to work with some of the other outside backs at the club.”

Lane and Buchanan are the latest to sign contract extensions with the club following new deals for Carlos Tuimavave, Brad Fash and Masi Matongo.
