Hull FC have agreed an out-of-court settlement with former player Shannon McDonnell.

The 27-year-old Australian full-back resigned from the Black and Whites last June before ending the 2014 Super League season with St Helens.

He took legal action against the club over an alleged breach of contract.

Chairman Adam Pearson told the Hull Daily Mail: "It has been a long dispute and we are glad to put it behind us now."
