Yeaman signs new Hull deal

Hull centre Kirk Yeaman has signed a new three-year deal with the club, ending speculation he may leave the KC Stadium at the end of the season.

Yeaman, 27, is one of the clubs’ longest serving players, having made 211 appearances for the club but has been linked with a move to city rivals Hull KR and St Helens in the press this week.

He said: “I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I can’t see myself playing anywhere else but here and I am over the moon to sign a new deal.

“I love it at Hull, it is a great club with some great people, both in the playing and coaching staff and behind the scenes.”

Yeaman was part of the 2005 Challenge Cup winning side and also scored a brace of tries in the 2008 final loss to St Helens.

“We have a good squad here, that is only going to get better and I think we are in with a shout of challenging for the league title this season.”

Coach Richard Agar believes Yeaman can now concentrate on putting his claims forward for a place in the England international set up for the mid-season international against France and end of year Four Nations Down Under.

“With his age, experience and ability, he can achieve the form to enable that and we are really pleased that we have secured a player of Kirk’s quality for the next three years.

“He puts his heart and sole into everything to do with Hull FC and has been a loyal servant, on and off the field, over the ten years he has had with the club and that is a tremendous reflection on him as a player and a person.”
