Cronulla five-eighth Adam Dykes has agreed to a two-year deal with English Super League club Hull FC.

Hull announced the signing on their website, just a day after Cronulla confirmed that the veteran playmaker would be quitting the NRL at the end of the 2007 season.

The 30-year-old, who has played over 200 games in the NRL with both Cronulla and Parramatta, is expected to link up in the halves at Hull with Great Britain international Richard Horne.

Dykes had been offered a new two-year deal to remain at Cronulla but the Sharks now are believed to be focussing on retaining his halves partner Brett Kimmorley.

Kimmorley may re-sign with the club as early as Tuesday.

"I'm really looking forward to making the move to Hull," Dykes said on the Hull FC website.

"I've always wanted to have a shot at Super League and the Challenge Cup. Hull is a great club to try and achieve those goals with."

Dykes will replace Richard Swain, who is retiring at the end of the current campaign, in Hull's overseas quota.

"He is a very smart player and will provide strong leadership and direction on the field," Hull coach Peter Sharp said.

"His left foot will provide a nice variation to our kicking game."

Hull are currently in eighth spot on the Super League ladder, just one point out of the top six.
