Hull defender James Chester has ended speculation over his future by signing a three-year contract.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Tigers from Manchester United in January 2011, will remain at the KC Stadium until the summer of 2016.

Chester told the club's official website, "It's nice to get the paperwork out of the way."

He added: "I'm happy here and I've got a great relationship with the rest of the lads. I also enjoy living in this area. This is the perfect situation."

Central defender Chester made 48 appearances during the club's promotion winning Championship campaign.
