Figueroa ready for the challenge

I'm happy to be here and to be a part of the club. It is a big challenge for me, but it's certainly one I'm looking forward to.

When the team were playing the final few games in the Championship, I paid close attention to the results because I wanted Steve Bruce to achieve promotion. I was happy for him to earn the success. He is a great manager, and I'm looking forward to working with him again.

I watched the Cardiff game, and after the final whistle, I turned to my wife and said, 'Hull could be an option for me next year'.
