Football | Hull City sign Jordan Flores
Hull City have signed Jordan Flores on an 18-month contract.
Flores, 25, joins the League One club following the expiration of his contract at Dundalk.
The 2020 FIFA Puskas Award nominee spent two seasons with the Lilywhites, winning the 2019 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division title, and scoring seven goals in 41 appearances for the Irish club.
Attacking midfielder Flores, who made his professional breakthrough at boyhood club Wigan, has scored two goals in four Europa League appearances this season, including an excellent strike against Arsenal in his last appearance for Dundalk.
The Tigers - managed by Grant McCann - are currently second in the English third tier, four points behind leaders Lincoln City with a game in hand.
The Hull manager has expressed his delight at bringing Flores, who is the Yorkshire club's first signing of the January transfer window, to the KCOM Stadium.
“We’re really pleased (to sign Flores),” McCann told the club website.
“Jordan will bring good balance to the team, being left footed.
“He’s different to what we’ve already got in midfield and will provide good competition for places.
“He can score a screamer and shoot from distance with his left foot and right foot. He can open up things and see passes. He is very good in terms of putting forwards in.
“We’re bringing him in for his creativity and he’s quite versatile in the way he plays.
“He’s a really good character and an excellent lad in how he goes about his business.”
Elsewhere in League of Ireland news, Derry City have re-signed David Parkhouse from Sheffield United on a three-year deal. Parkhouse, who bagged 19 goals in 39 matches during his previous loan spell at the Candystripes, says he "couldn't be happier" to be back at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.
St. Patrick's Athletic have also brought in Matty Smith from Waterford United.
