Hull have confirmed the signing of Salford's Australian five-eighth Daniel Holdsworth on a two-year Super League contract.
The Black and Whites said they fought off interest from several rival English and NRL clubs to capture the 28-year-old former St George Illawarra and Canterbury Bulldogs player.
Holdsworth becomes Hull's third confirmed signing for next season following the acquisition of England forward Gareth Ellis and Castleford centre Joe Arundel.
Salford are also reportedly poised to lure Castleford halfback Rangi Chase, Bradford winger Jason Crookes and Hull KR forward Ben Galea to the KC Stadium.
Holdsworth, who has been in Super League for the last three seasons, played his last match for Salford in their defeat by Wakefield on Saturday.
"It's a big move to a bigger club and a prestigious club like Hull FC but I'm looking forward to it and it's very exciting," Holdsworth said.
"Hull FC are pretty much always in the eight and they play finals footy and that is what I want as a professional."
Hull coach Peter Gentle, who was an assistant at Wests Tigers before his move to England, was excited about signing the playmaker.
"Daniel is a quality player," Gentle said.
"He has one of the best general kicking games in the competition and he's going to add another dimension to our side in that respect.
"He's going to improve as a player and he's going to improve us as a team so it's a win-win situation. He's an accomplished player. He's over here and settled and he's not a risky signing."
