Hull have signed Samoa international Carlos Tuimavave on a three-year deal, subject to international clearance.

The 23-year-old five-eighth will join the Super League club in 2016 from Australian side Newcastle Knights.

The former junior New Zealand captain said: "I am looking forward to moving my family to England and making a positive contribution to Hull."

Hull coach Lee Radford added: "He has a bit of X-factor - a player that can create something from nothing."
