Following a long and tedious transfer saga last summer, Hull FC pivot Jake Connor admits he is now relishing his time at his new club.
Signed from Huddersfield back in June, Connor put pen to paper on a three year deal, but speculation then rose about his decision to sign for Hull, with reports of doubt in the players mind.
Those reports did prove to be true, but Connor is now solely focused on breaking into the side at a top end Super League Club in Hull FC.
“I’ve settled in really well and I’m loving it here at Hull,” Connor told League Express.
“I’m not really one for big changes, but I’m glad I’ve come now.
“I just want to win trophies, get on with my rugby and help the team out as much as I can.
“I’m just focusing on that and I’m looking forward to my future here.”
Setting his ambitions high, there’s no doubt to Connor’s goals whilst at Hull FC, with the player eager to capitalise on the outstanding year of 2016.
For Jake himself, last season was a good one for him individually, despite Huddersfield’s troubles, and he wants to now build on that at a top end side, a side he should make his debut for on Sunday at Salford.
“I like being close to home and family, but I thought a change could be good for me,” Connor continued.
“I’ve not signed for a bottom of the league club, but for a winning club and hopefully I can help them out throughout my time here.”
