FORMER Celtic and Ross County midfielder Jackson Irvine has described a ‘whirlwind’ few years after joining Hull City on a three-year deal from Burton Albion.
The Australia international departed Dingwall last summer to join the Championship club after winning the League Cup and securing a top-six finish with the Staggies.
Irvine joined Celtic in 2010 but made just one senior appearance for the Hoopsbefore loan spells with Kilmarnock and County.
The 24-year-old’s move to the KCOM Stadium was completed on Wednesday and he admitted things have gone quickly after joining his third club in three years.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be signing here,” he said.
“It has all happened relatively quickly but I’m just looking forward to starting a new chapter in my career. I’m buzzing about it.
“It’s only recently that a move has come onto the radar and Hull were really keen to sign me.
“Leaving Burton Albion was difficult in its own way because that club was great for me, but having the chance to come here and progress and move forward with a club that has great ambitions is something that I’m delighted about.
“It’s been a big few years for me – coming through the youth team at Celtic, moving to Ross County, coming down to England with a year at Burton and now finding myself at a club like Hull City. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind but I’m so excited to be here.”
