Newcastle fullback Tex Hoy will leave the Knights at the end of the NRL season after signing a two-year deal with English Super League club Hull FC.

A Souths Newcastle junior who debuted in 2020, Hoy has struggled to lock down a regular position in Adam O'Brien's side, making just 23 appearances across the past two seasons.

The 22-year-old has been deployed at fullback and five-eighth at times this year, filling in for players such as Kalyn Ponga and Jake Clifford for the Knights.

The youngster is hopeful his move to England can bring the regular game-time he's seeking.

"It's a huge opportunity for me to play some footy, whilst being able to grow as a player and a person," Hoy told Hull FC's website.

"I've heard that Hull is a big rugby league city and I know that there are two teams that hate each other there.

"Mark O'Meley coaches me at NSW Cup level and as soon as he found out about Hull's interest, he gave me a nudge and told me how much I would enjoy it."

Hoy's exit comes after the Knights confirmed earlier this week half Anthony Milford would also be leaving the club at season's end to take up a deal with NRL expansion outfit The Dolphins.
