HULL, England (AP) — Hull City has completed the signing of defender Curtis Davies from Birmingham.

The 28-year-old center back signed a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Davies said, "I feel that I'm joining Hull City at an exciting time and the chance to play in the Premier League was also a huge attraction. It's something that I've been lucky enough to do before and I wanted to get back to that level.

"Hopefully I can help this team to have a good season and push as high up the table as possible. I can't wait for Chelsea on the first day of the season now."

Davies has previously played for Premier League teams West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa. He made 89 appearances for Birmingham City, scoring 11 goals.
