Ben Reynolds has left Hull FC with immediate effect to sign an 18-month deal with Featherstone Rovers. The Black and Whites were first told by Hull KR this Monday morning of Reynolds' exit, with the half-back moving to West Yorkshire on a permanent contract.

Reynolds was on a loan deal with Hull from Hull KR until the end of the season. However, Hull Live understands he wasn't offered terms by the Airlie Birds for the 2025 season, with the player then asked to be released from his parent club, where he was also surplus to requirements after signing earlier this year.

Reynolds has since walked out on Hull to complete a deal with Featherstone, with the 30-year-old now set for a spell in the Championship. The half first signed for the Flatcappers this year before his move to the Robins. He also played back on dual reg at Post Office Road after turning out in Super League for Willie Peters' side.

Moving to Hull in May, Reynolds played five times for the Black and Whites, scoring his one and only try against Salford last weekend. He also kicked 14 goals for the club, having debuted at Castleford Tigers.

Hull will now likely call on Jack Charles to step back into the half-back role for Saturday's derby against Hull KR. Charles has played eight first-team appearances this year and featured for England Academy against France last week. He has also featured for the club's academy and reserves sides in recent weeks and last played first-grade at London several weeks ago.
