Official : Former West Ham Schoolboy Emmanuel Joins Newly Relegated Hull City
Through a statement on their official website, newly relegated League One club Hull City have confirmed the signing of Nigerian right-back Josh Emmanuel.

The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with The Tigers, with the club holding an option to extend by a further year.

Emmanuel spent his formative years as a footballer with the youth team of West Ham, then transferred to Ipswich Town before a permanent move to Bolton Wanderers in 2019.

Commenting on the signing of Emmanuel, Hull City head coach Grant McCann stated : "Josh has all the physical tools needed to be a modern day full-back. He’s tall, strong and is rarely beaten for pace, which also highlights just how good he is in one-on-one situations – both attacking and defensively.

“He is comfortable on the ball, likes to get forward and, once there, can deliver dangerous balls into the box.

“The commitment and desire he has shown to come here and become part of a squad looking to mount a real challenge for promotion has been first class. I’m delighted to have him on board and look forward to working with him during his time at the Club"

The London-born Emmanuel has made 100 appearances in the Football League, including the playoffs.
