Hull City have completed the signing of defender Curtis Davies from Birmingham on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The Premier League side reportedly paid a transfer fee in the region of £2.25million, for the 28-year-old, who has a year left on his contract at St Andrew's.

Davies played over 100 times for Birmingham after joining the club in January 2011 from Aston Villa.

He began his career at Luton Town before he joined West Bromwich Albion and became their second-youngest captain.

Davies then joined Villa, initially on a season long loan in August 2007, but left at the start of 2011 following a three-month stay at Leicester City.

He was linked with Norwich City and Wolves in the January transfer window, but is now poised to return to the top flight with promoted Hull.

Davies said: "I'm delighted to be here.

"I feel that I'm joining Hull City at an exciting time and the chance to play in the Barclays Premier League was also a huge attraction. It's something that I've been lucky enough to do before and I wanted to get back to that level.

"Hopefully I can help this team to have a good season and push as high up the table as possible. I can't wait for Chelsea on the first day of the season now."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
