Former Newcastle United 'keeper Steve Harper has finalised a move to Premier League new-boys Hull City, on a one year contract.

Harper, who made 157 appearances for The Magpies over a 20-year spell, completed a medical and became the sixth signing of the summer for Steve Bruce's side. He joins George Boyd, Maynor Figeroua, Ahmed Elmohamady, Curtis Davies and Allan McGregor.

Harper and McGregor will compete for the number one spot which will allow forgotten keeper' Eldin Jakupovic to leave the club, either on loan or a permanent deal.

The only other competition for the number one spot will be youth keeper Joe Cracknell but with a 24 hour recall clause written into the loan contract of Mark Oxley, who has been farmed out to Oldham Athletic, allows Bruce to not have to worry about his third option.

Hull had previously approached Steve Harper for a loan in 2012 under former manager Nick Barmby but the club ultimately decided to take Vito Mannone on loan from Arsenal instead. Harper has enjoyed loan spells at clubs such as Bradford, Hartlepool and Brighton & Hove Albion.
