Hull FC

It has been a busy day for transfer activity on Humberside today. After the news broke this morning that Jordan Abdull would not remain with the Catalans Dragons next season, and that he would leave Hull KR at the season, the path was clear for him to make an emotional return to the club where he started his Super League career, Hull FC. 

Now, FC have confirmed that Jordan Abdull will return to the club for the 2025 season. The move has been rumoured for several weeks and Abdull becomes the club’s second official signing ahead of 2025, after the news broke that John Asiata would join the club from the Leigh Leopards.

A club statement reads: “Hull FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Abdull from Hull KR for the 2025 Betfred Super League season.

“A significant piece of recruitment for the club, the 28-year old half-back will return to the Black & Whites after a seven year absence, signing a three-year deal to keep him at the MKM Stadium until at least the end of the 2027 campaign.

“The dangerous play-maker becomes the club’s second permanent signing ahead of the 2025 season, joining powerhouse forward John Asiata in West Hull next year.”

Speaking in the club statement, Adbull stated that he was pleased to have the opportunity to potentially end his career where it all started.

Abdull said: “As soon as the opportunity to join Hull FC came about, I saw it as a chance to potentially bring the curtain down on my career at the club where my professional Rugby League journey started.

“The club are recruiting the right sort of players, the right sort of off-field staff, the right sort of coaches. That screams out to me that there is an ambition to get back into a strong position and I have a huge determination to be a part of that process.

“It’s going to be nice to be back in Hull and I’m looking forward to being closer to my family again.”

Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler,expressed his delight at securing the capture of Adbull from next season. He believes that fans of Hull can get excited about what is to come, after a difficult 2024. Myler said: “We’re delighted to bring Jordan back to West Hull in 2025 – securing one of the competition’s most exciting and dangerous English play-makers is significant for us as a club.

“Since our first conversation regarding the move, Jordan’s desire to return to the MKM Stadium has been clear to see. He has unfinished business here and we believe the pairing of himself and Jake Trueman next season is something our supporters can really get excited about.

“During the years since he departed the club, his talents and capabilities on the field have been clear to see throughout his time at London, Hull KR, and this season at Catalans – he brings calmness and great communication to the role, and he’s returning with some great experience gained.”
