Hull FC have agreed a deal to bring Jordan Abdull back to the club for the 2025 season and beyond. The 28-year-old is currently on loan at Catalans Dragons, with his parent club Hull KR allowing the Black and Whites permission to speak to the player.

Abdull is contracted to the Robins until the end of the 2026 season. However, his future is certainly going to be away from East Hull with the Dragons, who acquired Abdull on a season-long loan, having the option to extend that deal, with the deadline to do so in July.

But Hull Live understands the player's preference has been to instead move back to Hull, with the Airlie Birds, who launched a move for Abdull a few weeks ago, agreeing a multi-year move that will see their former academy product return to his junior club.

The Black and Whites will hope Abdull forms a strong partnership with Jake Trueman next season while helping to bring on the club's emerging talent, with Jack Charles tipped to make the transition into the position long-term.

Abdull, meanwhile, debuted for Hull a decade ago and made 54 appearances for the club between the 2014 and 2018 seasons. Since leaving the club, he has played for both Hull KR and London Broncos, making over 175 career appearances to date. He also made his England debut against France in 2021.

Abdull is expected to join the likes of John Asiata, Amir Bourouh, Zak Hardaker, and Oliver Holmes as new signings at the club next season. Hull are also set to make further additions, both domestically and overseas, with the hooker and back-row positions being their primary targets.
