Hull City have completed the signing of keeper Nathan Baxter on a season-long loan from Chelsea and they have the option to make it a permanent move in the future.

The 23-year-old spent the previous campaign with the Tigers and he generally impressed, making 18 appearances in all competitions and keeping seven clean sheets, with injury preventing him from featuring more.

Therefore, Shota Arveladze had wanted to bring the stopper back as he looks to put his own mark on the squad ahead of the new season and Hull announced this afternoon that the deal is done.

Whilst the move is an initial loan, terms have been agreed on a potential permanent switch providing everything goes to plan for Baxter and Hull next season.

This move will give the former Accrington loanee another chance to play regularly in the Championship and he is sure to be the number one when the new campaign begins later this month.

Arveladze’s side are in action against Bristol City in the opener on July 30.

True False

The verdict

This seems like very sensible business from Hull City as they have brought in a player the manager and the staff know well and someone who has performed for them in the past.

It was clearly a transfer they needed to happen, so the club deserve credit for getting it over the line, particularly with an option to buy.

Now, it’s down to Baxter to build on his displays from last season and he could easily become a key player for what will be a new-look Hull side in the years to come.
