Hull have bolstered their ranks for the 2014 Super League campaign with the capture of Castleford centre Jordan Thompson.
Hull have been heavily linked with the 22-year-old, but now owner Adam Pearson has finally confirmed the move and also says there could be more on the way.
The news comes as a boost ahead of the Super League play-off eliminator against Catalan Dragons on Friday, but the club are already looking ahead to next season.
“We have already signed Jacob Miller for the 2014 season and added Mickey Paea, a stand-out Super League player for next season,” Pearson said.
“We are also pleased to announce Jordan Thompson from Castleford who although only 22 has played close to 100 Super League games and was much coveted by other top Super League clubs.”
Pearson admits he wants to bring three more players to the club and is targeting an outside back, front rower and back rower for the next campaign.
Hull have shown they are a club heading in the right direction after making it to the Challenge Cup final before losing to Wigan, while they have also done well in Super League when finishing sixth.
“I feel we are making strong progress as a club. We are pursuing strongly the ethos of a Club Hull with talented young players being given a chance to represent their city,” he added.
“We feel very strongly that this is the way forward in order to once and for all establish Hull FC as a Super League power.”
