Andy Cannon joined Hull City in June 2021, signing an initial two-year deal at the MKM Stadium with the Tigers, with a Club option of a further year.

Born in Ashton-under-Lyne, the 25-year-old midfielder’s career began at Rochdale. He made his first-team debut for the Dale in September 2014, as he came on as a substitute in a League One match against Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road.

He went on to make over 100 appearances for the club over a five-year spell at Spotland, with the highlight being his man-of-the-match performance against Tottenham Hotspur in the 2016/17 FA Cup.

Cannon left Rochdale in January 2019 to link up with experienced manager Kenny Jackett at Portsmouth. Cannon helped Pompey to reach the League One play-offs in his first full season at Fratton Park, playing 28 times in total before promotion hopes were ended in a penalty shootout defeat to Oxford United.

The midfielder made 49 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring in wins against Charlton and Wigan Athletic, and was a standout performer in Portsmouth’s 2-0 win against Hull City at the MKM Stadium in December as they went on to finish eighth in League One.
