Hull City have completed the signing of experienced defender Liam Ridgewell on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
Before moving to the United States, Ridgewell played over 300 games in English football during long spells at Aston Villa, Birmingham and West Brom. He has also spent time on loan at Bournemouth, Wigan and Brighton.
"I’m delighted to sign having spent the last few days up here training with the boys," Ridgewell told Hull's official website after signing his six-month deal.
"It’s nice to be back in English football and back in the Championship. The boys have really welcomed me and this is a team looking to move in the right direction.
"They’ve been on a good run up until last weekend, and it’s a group that is prepared to work hard for each other and hopefully I can use my experience to help the side to push on a little bit more."
