Hull City capture goalkeeper McGregor

Created on Jul. 02, 2013 8:04 AM EST

Hull City have announced the signing of goalkeeper Allan McGregor from Besiktas for an undisclosed fee.

The Scottish shot-stopper has signed a three-year deal with the Yorkshire club, and becomes Steve Bruce's fifth signing of the off-season.

"I’m really excited to be here and I’m happy that everything is done now," McGregor told the club's official website after putting pen to paper.

"I can’t wait to get started here. This is a great chance for me to play in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to the season ahead."

McGregor spent just 12 months in Turkey with Besiktas, and made 25 appearances as the Istanbul club finished third in the Super Lig in 2012-13.

He had previously spent six years as Rangers' number one, winning three Scottish Premier League titles during his time at Ibrox.

Hull City relied on loan goalkeepers as they sealed automatic promotion from the Championship last season.

They began the campaign with Manchester United youngster Ben Amos in goal, before taking David Stockdale from Fulham for the latter half of the campaign.
