Northern Irish left back Joe Dudgeon signed from Manchester United in May 2011, becoming the latest in a series of players to move from the Premier League Champions to Hull City as he followed in the footsteps of Cameron Stewart, James Chester and Corry Evans.
The youngster's only experience of first team football prior to his City move came during a loan spell at Carlisle United in 2010/11.
Although born in England, Joe has Northern Irish ancestry and he has made two under-21 appearances for the country.
Joe made his Hull City debut against Blackpool on the opening night of the 2011/12 season and enjoyed an intense battle with Andy Dawson for the left back slot until a hamstring problem ended his campaign.
After a good pre-season, Joe started the 2012/13 as the club's first-choice left back with a string of impressive performances.
