Reports: Hull FC interested in signing Jordan Abdull

Hull FC are interested in bringing Jordan Abdull back to his boyhood club, according to Hull Daily Mail.

Abdull is currently on loan at Catalans Dragons from Hull KR until the end of the season, with FC keen to bring the stand-off back to the MKM Stadium for the 2025 season.

However, Catalans have first refusal on whether to sign the 28-year-old permanently from the end of the season, leaving Hull with work to do if they are to secure their former player’s services.

Abdull started his career with the Black and Whites in 2014, playing 54 matches for the club before leaving to join London Broncos in 2019.

After impressing for the Broncos he earned a move to FC’s city rivals Hull KR in 2020, excelling in a four-year stint which led to his first England cap in 2021.

Though still technically a Rovers player, Abdull has spent this season on loan in the South of France and most recently played in Catalans victory over Leeds Rhinos on Saturday.

Abdull ‘interested’ in Hull FC move

Though Hull may look like outsiders to secure this deal at this stage, Hull Live report that Abdull is interested in a return to the Airlie Birds.

Parent club Hull KR have reportedly given their city rivals permission to speak to Abdull, with Catalans unlikely to stop the move should he want to return home.

Abdull would be a homegrown player at FC, given them salary cap dispensation, and would be a smart addition as new Director of Rugby Richie Myler continues to pull strings in the transfer market.

Myler has already added a number of players to the Hull roster for 2025, most notably Leigh captain John Asiata. Rumours have also suggested the club have secured deals for two more Leigh players, Oliver Holmes and Zak Hardaker

Signing Abdull would be a boost

The announcement of Abdull’s signature would provide a much-needed boost for Hull fans after a weekend to forget.

FC were taken apart by bottom club London Broncos, consigning them to a ninth consecutive defeat in all competitions.

It leaves the Black and Whites joint bottom of the Super League table, having won just one game all season.

Attentions now are firmly on 2025 with the club almost certain not to be relegated to the Championship under the IMG criteria, leaving all of the focus on building a squad capable of competing next season.

Despite all the work behind the scenes, Hull are still without a head coach following the sacking of Tony Smith in early April.

It’s unknown if the club will stick with interim boss Simon Grix until the end of the season or if the search for a new boss is on the agenda during the next two weeks, with a break in the calendar due to the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Whatever the plan is, there’s sure to be more headlines coming out of the MKM Stadium in the coming days as Myler and owner Adam Pearson continue to restructure the club on and off the pitch.
