Billy Sharp: Hull City confirm signing of veteran striker

Former Sheffield United and LA Galaxy striker Billy Sharp will join Championship side Hull City on 1 January 2024, on a deal until the end of the season.

The 37-year-old has scored 255 goals in 642 league appearances during a career which also took in a stint with Scunthorpe United.

Sharp scored six goals in 12 games for his last club LA Galaxy.

"It's the ultimate no-brainer," Tigers boss Liam Rosenior said.

"We've got an exciting, young, attacking group of players but what I found in my experience of promotion, and Billy has five, is that when you get to April and May, you need people who have been there, seen it and done it.
