FORMER Celtic midfielder Jackson Irvine has joined Hull City in a £2million, three-year deal.

The Australian international, who played just once for the Hoops, described the move as the end of “whirlwind” period after moving to his third club in as many seasons.

Irvine, 24, said: “It has all happened relatively quickly, but I’m just looking forward to starting a new chapter in my career. I’m buzzing about it.

“It’s only recently that a move has come onto the radar and Hull were really keen to sign me.

“Leaving Burton Albion was difficult in its own way because that club was great for me.

“However, having the chance to come here and progress and move forward with a club that has great ambitions is something that I’m delighted about.

“It’s been a big few years for me – coming through the youth team at Celtic, moving to Ross County, coming down to England with a year at Burton and now finding myself at a club like Hull City.

“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, but I’m so excited to be here.”

Irvine joined the Hoops from Melbourne Victory in December 12, 2010 after a successful trial period.

He came on as a sub in a 2-2 draw with Hibs in September two years later for his solitary first team appearance.

After a season on loan at Kilmarnock and another temporary deal with County, he joined the Dingwall outfit for a cut-price development fee.

After 11 goals in 44 games for Burton last season, he attracted the attention of Hull who got their man yesterday.
