Lucas Odunston has announced that he has signed fof Hull City just days after confirming his Leeds United exit.

Odunston spent 12 years on Leeds' books, but wasn't offered a professional contract at the end of his scholarship.

 

And the youngster has had better luck at Hull, where he spent time on trial towards the end of last season. 

Posting on Twitter yesterday (Friday), Odunston wrote: "Delighted to have signed a professional contract at @HullCity. Looking forward to the season ahead⚽️!"

Odunston failed to make a first-team appearance for Leeds, whose options in his position have included Luke Ayling, Gaetano Berardi and Jamie Shackleton.

The Whites can also call upon Bryce Hosannah and Robbie Gotts, and will soon have the Hull-born Lewie Coyle back from a loan spell at Fleetwood Town.

Another out-of-contract Leeds youngster, Alex Wollerton, also spent time on trial with the Tigers last season.

Will Leeds regret allowing Odunston to leave?
