Flores signs for Hull City as midfielder leaves Dundalk
Jan. 13, 2021
Hull City have signed midfielder Jordan Flores after the midfielder's contract expired at Dundalk.
The 25-year-old has signed an 18-month deal at the KCOM Stadium, with a club option of a further year.
Flores spent two seasons with the Lilywhites, winning the league in 2019 and helped them qualify for the Europa Leage group stages last year.
He scored seven goals in 41 appearances for the Premier Division side, including a sensational left-footed volley against Shamrock Rovers which was nominated for the 2020 FIFA Puskas Award.
His career had stalled after injuries and had spells with AFC Flyde and Östersunds FK in Sweden but the move to Louth helped Flores find top form again.
The attacking midfielder netted against Arsenal and Molde in the Europa League.
Hull are pushing for promotion and sit second in League 1 in England.
"We’re really pleased," said City boss Grant McCann.
"Jordan will bring good balance to the team, being left footed.
"He’s different to what we’ve already got in midfield and will provide good competition for places.
"He can score a screamer and shoot from distance with his left foot and right foot. He can open up things and see passes. He is very good in terms of putting forwards in.
"We’re bringing him in for his creativity and he’s quite versatile in the way he plays.
"He’s a really good character and an excellent lad in how he goes about his business."
