Hull FC are delighted to announce the signing of Jordan Abdull from Hull KR for the 2025 Betfred Super League season.

A significant piece of recruitment for the club, the 28-year old half-back will return to the Black & Whites after a seven year absence, signing a three-year deal to keep him at the MKM Stadium until at least the end of the 2027 campaign.

The dangerous play-maker becomes the club’s second permanent signing ahead of the 2025 season, joining powerhouse forward John Asiata in West Hull next year.

Having risen through the club’s academy ranks in the early 2010s, the England international made 54 appearances for the Airlie Birds between 2014 and 2018, including making nine appearances during the club’s historic 2016 season – he then spent a season on loan with the Robins in 2017 before departing the club on a permanent basis ahead of the 2019 campaign.

The Skirlaugh Bulls junior enjoyed an impressive campaign with London Broncos, before returning to Craven Park in 2020 where he would become a key cog for the Red and Whites over the following four seasons – Abdull earned international honours during his time in East Hull, making his England debut in 2021.

Abdull made the move to the South of France ahead of the start of the 2024 campaign, joining Catalans Dragons on a season long-loan – impressing at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, he has only missed three games so far this year.

But in 2025, Abdull will swap Perpignan for HU3 as he returns to his boyhood club, adding some important depth and experience to FC’s half-back options alongside the likes of Jake Trueman, Morgan Smith, and Jack Charles.

An astute goal-kicker, Abdull is known for his threatening kicking game, with a keen eye for a try assist – he has 44 tries and 83 goals to his name so far throughout his professional career.

Speaking to hullfc.com, Abdull said: “As soon as the opportunity to join Hull FC came about, I saw it as a chance to potentially bring the curtain down on my career at the club where my professional Rugby League journey started.

“The club are recruiting the right sort of players, the right sort of off-field staff, the right sort of coaches. That screams out to me that there is an ambition to get back into a strong position and I have a huge determination to be a part of that process.

“It’s going to be nice to be back in Hull and I’m looking forward to being closer to my family again.”

Hull FC’s Director of Rugby, Richie Myler, said: “We’re delighted to bring Jordan back to West Hull in 2025 – securing one of the competition’s most exciting and dangerous English play-makers is significant for us as a club.

“Since our first conversation regarding the move, Jordan’s desire to return to the MKM Stadium has been clear to see. He has unfinished business here and we believe the pairing of himself and Jake Trueman next season is something our supporters can really get excited about.

“During the years since he departed the club, his talents and capabilities on the field have been clear to see throughout his time at London, Hull KR, and this season at Catalans – he brings calmness and great communication to the role, and he’s returning with some great experience gained.”
