Newly promoted Hull City have confirmed the signing of Honduran international Maynor Figueroa from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee. 

The move sees Figueroa link up with Tigers manager Steve Bruce for the second time in his career after Bruce bought the Honduran to England after signing him for Wigan from Deportivo Olimpia in 2010. 

Figueroa has a large amount of Premier League experience with Wigan where he made over 200 appearances. The Honduran also has an FA Cup title to his name after the Latics overcame Manchester CIty in last seasons final. Figueroa also has 95 international caps to his name with Honduras. 

Figueroa will join up with his new team-mates after the pre-season break, and becomes Hull City's second signing of the summer after George Boyd made his loan-move from Peterborough permanent. 

Speaking to Hull City's official website, Figueroa stated his delight at joining up with former manager Steve Bruce and having another spell in the Premier League. 

"It is a big challenge for me, but it's certainly one I'm looking forward to. When the team were playing the final few games in the Championship, I paid close attention to the results because I wanted Steve Bruce to achieve promotion."

"I was happy for him to earn the success. He is a great manager, and I'm looking forward to working with him again," said Figueroa.
