Maloney swaps Chicago for Hull

Maloney, 32, joined the Major League Soccer franchise in January after a spell at Wigan but has been in Hull finalising terms for a number of days.
The attacking midfielder, who has also played for Celtic and Aston Villa, told the Fire’s website: “This was a very difficult decision to make but one that I felt I needed to make for various reasons.
“Although my time at the club was brief, I feel very fortunate for the experience to play for the Chicago Fire and would like to thank in particular my team-mates for the time I spent with them and hope that in the future the club can become successful on the pitch once again.”
The club’s head coach Frank Yallop added: “It’s tough to see a player of his quality leave but you have to take the human aspect of sport into consideration.
“I’m pleased that the club were able to find a solution that worked for all parties involved and I wish Shaun nothing but the best.”
Maloney, who should go straight into the Hull squad for their Sky Bet Championship match against Preston on Saturday, scored three times and made three assists in 14 matches for Chicago.
