Hull City have triggered an option to turn Ryan Giles' loan deal from Luton Town into a permanent move.

Giles, 24, joined the Tigers in January and made 17 Championship appearances as they finished one place outside the play-off places.

He has agreed a three-year contract, with the option of an extra year, after joining for an undisclosed fee.

The left-back, who made 11 Premier League appearances for the Hatters in the first half of last season, also has extensive Championship experience from loan spells at Coventry City, Rotherham United, Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough.
