Scotland international Allan McGregor will be plying his trade next year with Premier League new boys Hull City.

The current Besiktas goalkeeper will move to KC Stadium subject to international clearance.

McGregor will be a magnificent capture for the Tigers. The 31-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the club, who agreed an undisclosed fee with Besiktas.

"I'm really excited to be here and I'm happy that everything is done now," McGregor told the Hull City website. "I can't wait to get started here. This is a great chance for me to play in the Premier League and I'm looking forward to the season ahead."

The former Rangers goalkeeper moved to Turkey a year ago and has made 27 appearances during his short stay. He has close to 350 appearances under his belt in total and will be expected to take over from David Stockdale, who returned to parent club Fulham after the completion of his loan deal.

McGregor has 29 caps for Scotland and is a regular in the national team set up.

He follows Maynor Figueroa, Ahmed Elmohamady and Curtis Davies to the KC Stadium this summer.

With the goalkeeping dilemma solved, the Tigers will be looking to strengthen their outfield positions ahead of the new campaign.
