Hull City are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Nathan Baxter on a season-long loan from Premier League side Chelsea.
The 22-year-old has made over 150 appearances across loan spells with six different clubs, most recently Accrington in League One last season.
The Westminster-born shot-stopper kept seven clean sheets in 19 appearances for Stanley and saved three of the four penalties he faced.
He spent the previous season on loan in Scotland with Ross County and performed impressively for Yeovil in 2018/19, winning all five Player of the Season awards.
Before then, he learned his trade in non-league during spells with Metropolitan Police, Solihull Moors and Woking, where he was voted Player of the Year.
Head Coach Grant McCann said: “I’m very pleased to get Nathan in on a season-long loan. Nathan’s been our number one target and he made it very clear to me after our initial conversation that Hull City was where he wanted to come.
“He’s had a great upbringing and has progressed with each loan he’s had and comes to us with a great drive and determination to show what he’s about. He’s a very ambitious lad and he’s rated very highly at Chelsea, so we are delighted to get the deal done.
“We now have four excellent goalkeepers in Matt Ingram, Nathan Baxter, Harvey Cartwright and David Robson. I’m looking forward to seeing them push each other every day under the guidance of Barry Richardson.”
