West Ham youngster Reece Burke has joined Championship side Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old defender has signed a three-year contract at the KCOM Stadium, with the Tigers holding the option to extend that deal by another year.

Burke is familiar with the Championship having spent a large part of last season on loan with Bolton Wanderers and helped the Trotters avoid relegation after making 26 appearances, scoring once.

The defender came through the ranks at the London Stadium and after making his debut at the age of 17 against Nottingham Forest in 2014, he enjoyed an extended run in the Hammers’ side towards the end of the following campaign.

He made three appearances for the Irons last season, all of which coming in January in the FA Cup and scored the winner against Shrewsbury Town at the London Stadium.

But the 21-year-old has now decided to move on to pastures new in a bid to secure regular game time and has now completed a move to Hull, who finished in 18th place finish in the Championship last season.

He leaves the London Stadium having made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers.

Burke has now flown out to Portugal to link up with the Tigers’ squad and he told Hull’s website: “I’m over the moon to have signed for Hull City. I enjoy playing football and I see this move as a big opportunity for me. I’ve had a good chat with the Head Coach and I know that the Club were really keen to bring me here. That is a nice feeling to have.”
