Hull FC have confirmed the signing of Salford Red Devils hooker Amir Bourouh with the much-reported move now being confirmed by both FC and Salford Red Devils as well.

It had been reported that the 23-year-old was set to be one of a flurry of signings that Hull FC would make for 2025 earlier in the season and that has now been confirmed by the club.

Bourouh has signed a three-year contract with the club which will see him remain at the MKM Stadium until the end of the 2027 season. He’ll join loose forward John Asiata on a deal of the same length as well as returning star Jordan Abdull who crosses the city to return back to Hull FC.

It’s another key piece of recruitment for Hull FC who will be under the coaching of NRL assistant coach John Cartwright next year with the Australian having also signed a three-year deal as the club begins to start afresh in this new era.

Hull FC announced the arrival of Bourouh via their social media with an attached statement on their club site confirming the signing.

It read:”Hull FC are delighted to announce the signing of Amir Bourouh from Salford Red Devils for the 2025 Betfred Super League season.

“The young hooker joins up with the Black & Whites on a three-year contract, keeping him at the MKM Stadium until the end of the 2027 campaign.”

The 23-year-old explained his gratitude to Salford, who had signed him from Wigan, before expressing excitement to be linking up with Hull FC to continue his career.

He said: “First and foremost, I want to say a huge thank you to everybody at Salford for the last three years. I’ve loved my time at the club and I appreciate everything Paul Rowley, the coaching staff and my teammates have done for me.

“But I’m really excited to be joining Hull FC for 2025. It’s a huge honour to be joining a club with such a massive fanbase and it’s a privilege that I’ll be able to contribute to a new era in a small way.

“Having had a few conversations with Richie Myler, it was clear to me that the move was great fit for my continuing development as a player.

“My focus is on ending my time at Salford in the best way possible and my promise to the supporters and everyone at the club is to put all my effort into making sure that happens.”

The club have made plenty of moves since the appointment of Richie Myler as Sporting Director including signings this season such as Yusuf Aydin and Ben Reynolds from Hull KR, and NRL talent Jed Cartwright.

On signing Bourouh, Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, added: “Amir is an exciting young talent who we’re really pleased to add to our ranks for next season, adding some important depth to the hooker role.”

Myler continued: “He has come through an exceptional youth system at Wigan not so long ago which has instilled some great personal and playing qualities in him, which have been visible when he’s been on the field over the last couple of seasons. He’s a bright young man with a great Rugby League head on his shoulders.

“We’re confident that we as a club can provide a platform for him to continue to develop himself as a player – as a young English hooker who will still only be 24 by the time he starts next season, we’re getting him at a really exciting stage of his career as he starts to approach his prime playing years.”
