Walters climbing with Tigers
Hull's new signing Jonathan Walters
Walters is ready to climb with Tigers
New Hull signing Jonathan Walters says the Tigers can progress right up the Nationwide League.

Walters completed his move from Bolton, signing a two-and-a-half year contract.

Hull paid an initial 50,000 for the 20-year-old, Republic of Ireland under-21 international.

Walters said: "If we can get promoted this year there's every chance we could have a crack at going up into the First Division, which would be massive for the club and the players."

Walters spent a successful loan spell at the KC Stadium last season, and also spent time with Barnsley.

He said: "Having played here last season and then for Barnsley, who are fourth in the Second Division, I'd say that the side here is the better out of the two.

"It's a massive opportunity for myself because the team are top of the Third Division and, touch wood, hopefully we'll be going up into the Second Division for next season."

Meanwhile, Hull have dismissed reports that Walters' arrival will mean the sale of Jamie Forrester, who had been linked with a return to Grimsby Town.
