George Boyd has signed for Hull City on a permanent transfer after being with the club on loan since February.

Boyd helped the Tigers gain automatic promotion to the Premier League as he scored four goals in 13 appearances to help them finish as runners-up in the Championship.

These four goals came in his five appearances for the club in March and enabled him to win the nPower Championship Player of the Month award.

The midfielder was on loan from Peterborough United, who were relegated on the last day of the season to League One.

The 27-year-old was out of contract at London Road and has now signed a two-year deal at the KC Stadium.

Boyd was Peterborough's record signing when he joined from then non-league Stevenage in 2007.

He made just under 300 appearances for Posh, playing in all three Football League tiers, and scored 75 goals for the club.

The midfielder was on the brink of joining Nottingham Forest in January but bizarrely failed the medical after an eye test proved to be inconclusive.
