thumbnail Hello,

The out-of-contract Honduras international has signed a two-year deal with the Tigers which sees him reunite with former Wigan manager Steve Bruce at the promoted side

Hull City have confirmed they have signed left-back Maynor Figueroa on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old defender has 95 international caps for Honduras and signs for the newly promoted Premier League side as a free agent having left relegated Wigan at the end of his contract.

His arrival at the Tigers sees him reunite with his former Latics manager Steve Bruce, who brought him to the Lancashire club on a loan basis from Olimpia in 2008 before he signed a permanent deal later that year.

Figueroa told the club's official website: "I'm happy to be here and to be a part of the club. It is a big challenge for me, but it's certainly one I'm looking forward to.

"When the team were playing the final few games in the Championship, I paid close attention to the results because I wanted Steve Bruce to achieve promotion.

"I was happy for him to earn the success. He is a great manager, and I'm looking forward to working with him again.

"I watched the Cardiff game, and after the final whistle, I turned to my wife and said, 'Hull could be an option for me next year'."

Bruce is a huge fan of the Honduran, who scored three goals in 41 appearances last season as Wigan won the FA Cup, and believes he is a major coup for the newly promoted Tigers.

"I rate Maynor as one of the best left-backs in the Premier League, no question," said the Hull boss.
