Strengthening in Midfield

The Tigers are continuing to strengthen in midfield ahead of the new campaign.

Four of the ten players released at the end of last season were central midfielders. As a result, it is an area where Grant McCann has looked to address.

The Hull boss has looked to add a mix of experience and quality to his midfield. He has already added Richie Smallwood to his squad, whose experience at League One level will prove useful for the Tigers, as they look to return to the Championship at the first attempt.

However, it is Docherty who will add extra quality. The 23-year-old impressed during his loan spell with Shrewsbury Town, scoring ten times in 50 appearances. A box-to-box midfielder, he will add an element of attacking threat to the Hull midfield.

What Was Said?

Speaking about his new signing to the Hull City website, Tigers boss Grant McCann said: “We’re delighted to have added Greg to the group because he’ll bring a different dynamic to our midfield.

“He’s got great energy, has the ability to go from box-to-box and boasts a wide passing range. On top of that, he’ll provide a real threat in the final third of the pitch with his ability to both score and create goals.

“Despite only being 23-years-of-age, he’s very level headed and mature. I’m excited to start working with Greg on the back of the conversations I’ve had with him over the past couple of days, which have been really encouraging. He’s coming here with a real hunger and desire to want to show people how good he is.”
