Former Ross County goalkeeper Nathan Baxter has left Chelsea on loan, this time joining Hull City for the 2021/22 season.
Baxter was linked with several EFL clubs this summer after form at Accrington Stanley last campaign. The Chelsea prospect – who grabbed headlines with his loan spell at Ross County in the 19/20 Scottish Premiership season – has opted for the English Championship and Hull. It’s the sixth loan of his career.
Hull head coach Grant McCann said of Baxter: “I’m very pleased to get Nathan in on a season-long loan. Nathan’s been our number one target and he made it very clear to me after our initial conversation that Hull City was where he wanted to come.
“He’s had a great upbringing and has progressed with each loan he’s had and comes to us with a great drive and determination to show what he’s about. He’s a very ambitious lad and he’s rated very highly at Chelsea, so we are delighted to get the deal done.
“We now have four excellent goalkeepers in Matt Ingram, Nathan Baxter, Harvey Cartwright and David Robson. I’m looking forward to seeing them push each other every day under the guidance of Barry Richardson.”
