Chester joined Manchester United as an eight-year-old

Hull City have signed 21-year-old centre-half James Chester from Manchester United for a fee in the region of £300,000.

Chester, who has been on loan at League One Carlisle United for much of the season, has joined the Tigers on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

He will not feature in Hull's FA Cup tie with Wigan as he is cup-tied.

The defender made just one appearance for Manchester United, in the League Cup in the 2008/09 season.

Chester has also had short loan spells at Peterborough, then managed by United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's son Darren, and Plymouth Argyle.
