Hull boss delighted with capture of Derby's Fagan

Hull City boss Phil Brown is delighted with the loan capture of Derby County attacker Craig Fagan.

"I don't think Craig ever really wanted to leave (Hull)," said Brown. "I always took great pleasure in working with him and he's a player I'll look forward to working with this season and hopefully beyond.

"The circumstances that saw him leave were difficult. We didn't want to see him leave but he had a contract due to expire and the chance to go and play in a promotion campaign.

"Craig understood the situation all along but he's a very good player who we're delighted to have back."

The Derby Telegraph says it is understood City will pay a fee for Fagan's services between now and the end of the season.

That sum will then be deducted from a permanent fee in the summer, with £700,000 expected to secure his long-term signature.
