A club statement from

Hull confirmed in a club statement on Wednesday morning: “The well-travelled shot-stopper has kept 98 clean sheets in more than 300 appearances for 13 different clubs, with 114 of his outings coming in the Championship and two in the Premier League.

“Confident with the ball at his feet, the Birmingham-born glovesman started all but three of Cardiff’s league matches last season, registering 12 shutouts and saving two of the four penalties he faced.

“Working with Liam Rosenior at Derby County in 2021/22, Allsop was an important member of the Wycombe Wanderers team that secured a historic first promotion to the second tier in 2019/20. The former West Bromwich Albion youngster also earned promotion from League One with AFC Bournemouth in 2012/13 and lifted the EFL Trophy on loan at Lincoln City during the 2017/18 season.

Hull head coach Rosenior said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Ryan has joined us and he’s going to add a lot of competition and quality to our goalkeeping department.

“I’ve worked with him before and I know his potential and ability. He’s brave and fantastic with his feet – one of the best, if not the best, in the league in terms of his distribution. He makes important saves, has played in every league – Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two – and is a good character, leader and talker.

“We identified him for a long time as someone who would fit into our style of play and I’m excited to see his quality playing our way. We want competition in every position on the pitch and having two outstanding goalkeepers at this level is exactly what we wanted.”
