Hull City has secured the talents of Chelsea midfielder Xavier Simons, signing him to a three-year contract for an undisclosed sum. This deal turns his temporary stint into a permanent arrangement. The 20-year-old prodigy initially joined the Tigers in September on a season-long loan, and has since played in seven matches for the Championship team.
Born in Hammersmith and a product of the Chelsea academy, Simons has one senior appearance with the Blues under his belt. Hull City’s manager Liam Rosenior recognizes the youngster’s immense potential and unwavering work ethic, noting his impressive physicality and athleticism. By sharpening Simons’ technical skills and tactical knowledge, Rosenior believes the club will gain a valuable asset.
