Young midfielder Callum Jones has joined League One newcomers Morecambe on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old, who signed a new contract with Hull City in January, broke into the first team at the start of last season and has made seven appearances in all competitions.
The Wales youth international scored his first career goal in the Tigers’ 2-0 Papa John’s Trophy victory at Harrogate, a match in which he also captained the side.
The youngster will be hoping to gain further experience with the newly-promoted Shrimps, who are set to embark on their first League One campaign under recently-appointed boss Stephen Robinson.
Head Coach Grant McCann said: “It was important for Callum’s development that we tried to get him some game time. We think highly of him and believe he has a serious future at this football club.
“He signed a new deal in January and Stephen Robinson is someone I know. When he spoke to me about Callum, it was a no brainer.
“The way Stephen likes him teams to play, and the way Callum is as a person, I think it’s the perfect fit. It’s League One, it’s a good standard for Callum and hopefully it’ll make him ready for when he comes back to us.”
The Club would like to wish Callum the very best of luck for his time at the Mazuma Stadium.
