Hull City have formally announced the signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos.

Amos has joined the Tigers on a season-long loan.

The tall, Macclesfield-born custodian has worked his way through the Old Trafford ranks since the age of 11, and joined the club's Academy in July 2006. He quickly established himself in Paul McGuinness' Under-18s side in the 2006/07 campaign, and made his Reserves debut in November 2007.
