Tyler Smith Signs For Hull City

27 August 2021

Hull City are delighted to announce the signing of forward Tyler Smith from Sheffield United on a two-year contract.

The 22-year-old, whose deal includes a Club option of a further year, becomes Grant McCann’s ninth summer signing.

The Sheffield-born striker has scored 29 goals in 96 career appearances and taken in loan spells with five different clubs.

Scoring on his senior debut at Barrow, he played under McCann at Doncaster in 2018/19 and gained further third-tier experience with Bristol Rovers and Rochdale.

He spent last season in League One with Swindon, scoring 10 goals in 26 matches, and made his only Sheffield United appearance against Carlisle in this season’s Carabao Cup.

Head Coach Grant McCann said: “We are delighted to get this deal done. Tyler is a player I know well, having spent time with him during my time at Doncaster, where we took him on loan from Sheffield United.

“He’s a great age at 22 and wants to learn and improve, which is always a key ingredient in our recruitment. He plays on the shoulder and wants to stretch teams, and we feel he will thrive in our environment.

“He’s a calm finisher and has a real knack of being in the right place at the right time.”

Smith has been allocated shirt number 22.
