Young defender Andy Smith has joined League Two side Salford City on a season-long loan.
The 19-year-old joined the Hull City Academy at Under-9s level and impressed on his first-team debut in the 3-2 EFL Trophy win over Fleetwood in January.
The Banbury-born centre-back was rewarded with a new contract until 2023 and featured as a substitute in this season’s EFL Cup tie against Wigan.
Gary Bowyer’s ambitious Ammies kick-started their season with an emphatic 3-0 win over Newport and sit 16th in the embryonic standings with five points from as many matches.
We would like to wish Andy the very best of luck for his time at the Peninsula Stadium.
