Hull FC target admits he held ‘talks’ with Brett Hodgson over the weekend

Hull FC have been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market in recent months.

The Black and Whites have secured the signature of Jake Trueman on a long-term deal whilst also saying goodbye to marquee man Josh Reynolds and Josh Bowden.

The likes of Connor Wynne and Jordan Lane have signed multi-year deals with head coach Brett Hodgson determined to build his side around young, exciting players for the future.

One of those exciting players who Hull have been linked with in recent weeks is Newcastle Knights starlet Tex Hoy.

Son of a surfing legend, Matt, Hoy is a close family friend of the Johns brothers, with the rangy playmaker initially linked with an immediate move to the MKM Stadium.

Hoy has played just six games for the Knights in 2022 and has registered 23 appearances for Newcastle overall since debuting in 2020.

Still only 22 years of age, it would certainly be an indicator of Hull’s new policy of bringing through young players in a bid to freshen up Hodgson’s squad.

And, Hoy himself has broken his silence on a potential deal, confirming that he had met with Hull officials in recent weeks to discuss the opportunity.

“There has been a Zoom,” Hoy told the Newcastle Herald.

“I’ve chatted to them and heard what they have on offer, but will leave all that up to my manager.

“It is an option but we’ll see what happens.”

Currently signed to a development contract at the Knights which ends this year, Hoy would rather stay in the NRL instead of moving abroad if possible, but the Herald reported over the weekend that a deal with Hull was all but done.

If true, a mouthwatering partnership between Trueman and Hoy would certainly lift spirits at the MKM Stadium after what has been an up and down season so far.
