Xavier Simons has completed a loan move to Championship side Hull City for the 2022/23 season.

The versatile centre-midfielder joined Chelsea in 2016 from Brentford following their decision to close their academy.

He made his senior Blues debut in the Carabao Cup last season when he started in a win at his former club.

Simons also featured regularly for our development squad last season, captaining the side for the majority of the season. He was utilised in a variety of positions including wing-back and as a centre-back.

He has represented England at various youth levels and will link up with Hull City manager Shota Arveladze for the Championship season. Chelsea goalkeeper Nathan Baxter is also on loan there.
