Hull confirm signing of French defender Mendy

Hull City have confirmed the free transfer signing of French international Bernard Mendy on a three-year contract.

Former Bolton defender Mendy was strongly linked with the Premier League newcomers after leaving Paris St Germain as a free agent and has now confirmed his expected return to England.

Tigers coach Phil Brown previously worked with the 26-year-old during his season-long spell at the Reebok Stadium, where Brown was assistant coach to Sam Allardyce.

'The sporting project is ambitious and interesting,' Mendy told L'Equipe shortly before the club announced the signing.

'I'm happy to go back to England. And above all I'll be meeting up again with Phil Brown, who was the assistant coach at Bolton when PSG loaned me out there. That counted a lot.

'The club are searching for other French footballers and have signed Geovanni from Manchester City.'

Mendy, who played 23 times for Wanderers, has three full caps for Les Bleus.
