Dan Batty

Hull CIty

Pontefract-born Dan’s outstanding form in Hull City’s Under-23 side was rewarded with a new two-year professional contract in May 2017.

He was also drafted into former manager Marco Silva’s first team squad, gaining a place on the bench for the home game against Tottenham Hotspur on the final day of the 2017/17 campaign.

A combative, tough-tackling central midfielder, Dan played a key role as the Tigers reached the Professional Development League play-off final.

Comfortable on the ball, he loves to break up opposition attacks and then provide a springboard for his own side to go on the offensive.

He enjoyed a spell on loan at Halifax Town in 2017 and all at SMI were delighted to see him score his first goal in a 4-2 defeat at Tranmere Rovers. He added a further goal and an assist, playing five games for the Shaymen.

Dan told the press he felt he had returned to Hull as a better player and we're all looking forward to seeing him develop further and fulfil his potential in the future.

Every day is a learning curve when you’re a young player and it’s been important for me to have the right people on my side. I’m developing all the time as a player and the SMI team have taken a lot of the pressure off and enabled me to concentrate on improving my game.

I was delighted to sign a new two year pro contract with Hull City and am grateful to Lee, Mark and the team for their help. I hope to repay the confidence everyone has shown in me by continuing my progress and breaking into the Hull first team as soon as possible.
