Hull City have signed Everton winger Josh Bowler on a season-long loan deal as confirmed on their official website.
The youngster has been the subject of speculation this transfer window and the deal has finally been confirmed where he will join the Tigers and continue to develop whilst at the KCOM stadium.
Bowler, who operates mainly as a right-winger, has spent the last couple of seasons playing for Everton’s Under 23s having signed for the Toffees in 2017.
He first played for QPR and has already made his Championship debut with the London based club so this won’t be his first taste of second tier football.
Bowler has expressed of his delight at the move. “I’m very excited to be here because’s it’s a massive club. As soon as I heard of Hull’s interest, I wanted to get the move through. It’s taken a bit of time but I’m just thankful to be here now and raring to go ahead of the forthcoming season.”
“Enjoying success with Everton’s Under-23s last season has given me the hunger to want to achieve more at Hull. I will try my best in every game, do everything I can for Hull, and I hope that shows to the supporters.”
“You are playing for a fanbase which cares passionately about the club and you have to do the same; to invest the same passion and show the same heart as the fans. Wherever I am, I will play my heart out and try to impress as many people as possible.”
Bowler is now Hull manager Grant McCann’s third signing of the summer following goalkeeper Matt Ingram and striker Tom Eaves in signing for the Tigers ahead of the new season.
