Hull City have signed defender Alex Bruce on a two-year deal, reports BBC Sport.
The 27 year old, who is the son of Tigers boss Steve, was a free agent after being released by Championship rivals Leeds United at the end of last season.
"When you look at what's going on in the Bosman market he makes a very good free transfer," the City boss told the club website.
"He's 27 and he'll handle the division. He's at the peak of his career and looks in good shape."
The former Republic of Ireland international previously played under his father for Birmingham City at the start of his career.
