Jordan Abdull’s exit confirmed ahead of expected move to Hull FC

Hull FC

One of the top half-backs in Super League moved one step closer to confirming their plans for next season, as it was confirmed that their current loan spell would not be extended for 2025, amid links to Hull FC.

Jordan Abdull joined the Catalans Dragons on a surprise move shortly before the start of the 2023 season. However, he has struggled to make an impression in the South of France and has received criticism in recent weeks for his role in a Catalans attack, which has sometimes struggled to fire.

When his move to Perpignan was announced, the Dragons were expected to make it permanent, despite him being under contract for 2025. His future for next season has become clearer, following a statement from Les Dracs.

Abdull started his career in Super League with Hull FC, before crossing the city to join Hull KR. It now appears he may be on the verge of a sensational return to the club where he started his career. Abdull has played 135 Super League games so far in his career, scoring 32 tries.

The Catalans Dragons have now confirmed that Abdull will leave the club at the end of his current loan spell. In a club statement released this morning, they confirmed that his loan spell will not be extended, and that he will leave the club at the end of the 2-24 season. The statement said:

“Catalans Dragons can confirm Jordan Abdull will leave the club at the end of the 2024 season.

“The England international joined the club on a one-season loan.

“He scored 3 tries and 36 points in 12 games under the Catalans jersey so far.”

Abdull played in Catalans’ defeat against St Helens at the weekend. Although the Dragons dominated much of the early part of the game, they looked disjointed attack and failed to make the most of their pressure.

As reported earlier this month, Hull FC are interested in bringing Abdull back to the club, with Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, keen to add him to their spine. Having allowed him to leave on loan, Hull KR are unlikely to stand in the way of Adbull’s move, despite his contracr in East Hull for next season.

As Abdull is a homegrown player, this would leave a quota spot available for other positions, as the Black and Whites attempt to overhaul their failing squad. Abdull also brings a wealth of Super League experience, which the club has lacked at times this season.

Hull have already confirmed the signing of John Asiata and Oliver Holmes and Zak Hardaker are expected to join Asiata in making the move from Leigh.

FC are also reportedly interested in bringing livewire half-back, Jayden Sullivan to the club from Wests Tigers. Sullivan would likely command a marquee deal if Hull do complete his signing.
