Hull City are “delighted” to announce that midfielder Regan Slater has joined the Club on a season-long loan from Sheffield United.
The 21-year-old bolsters Head Coach Grant McCann’s midfield options and becomes the Tigers’ tenth summer recruit.
Gleadless-born Slater progressed through the youth ranks at Bramall Lane and became the Blades’ youngest-ever goalscorer when netting on his senior debut against Grimsby in the EFL Trophy in 2016.
He has spent the last two seasons out on loan in League Two, making 41 appearances for Carlisle in 2018/19 and 15 at Scunthorpe last term.
Regan will help “push” midfield
Regan’s someone we’ve been monitoring for quite a while.
He’s a really good player, really sharp in his movements, really energetic, calm on the ball and has really good legs in terms of running away from people.
He’s had two very good loans at Scunthorpe and Carlisle, where he racked up over 40 appearances. He’s ready for the next step.
He was with Sheffield United’s first team all pre-season, and played in their pre-season games. He’s thought of highly there so we’re pleased to get him. He’s a good kid, got a good attitude and is a really good character.
Our midfielders have done well but to bring another one in helps us and Regan will come in and push them all the way.Grant McCann
