Newly-promoted Hull City have completed the signing of Birmingham City defender Curits Davies, BBC Sport reports.

The defender, who used to play for Aston Villa, passed a medical at the KC Stadium today and has signed a three year contract.

Davies told BBC Radio Humberside: “The chance to play in the Premier League was a huge attraction.”

“But so too was working with the manager Steve Bruce, who is someone I rate very highly.”

Davies was once one of the country’s brightest young defenders when he started at Luton Town and Aston Villa paid £9.5 million for him.

However, Davies has struggled with injury and signed for Birmingham in 2011 and now has another chance to play in the Premier League with his new club.

Davies is the first major signing of the summer for Hull City, with manager Steve Bruce looking to sign some quality players to help the club stay in the Premier League next season.

Hull are amongst one of the favourites to go down next season and Bruce will now look to re-enforce his side with a top quality striker.

Bruce has been linked with Aston Villa’s want-away striker Darren Bent and Celtic’s English striker Gary Hooper but will face competition for both players.
