Cape Town - Hull City manager Mike Phelan has raided his former club Manchester United to bolster his midfield with the signing of James Weir on a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old links up with former teammate Will Keane and believes it is the right move for his career.

"I've played with 'Keano' a few times and I'm looking forward to linking up with him again," he told Hull's official website.

"It's an important time in my career and I think every player of my age wants to try and start playing regular first-team football.

"I couldn't be happier to join Hull and really get my career started.

"The key thing for me is that I can be a regular part of the first-team squad here and I hope I can help as the club continues to move forward.

"It will be an exciting time once the international break is over and I can't wait to meet the rest of the lads."
