Hull City manager Peter Taylor said: 'He is a very good defender and an excellent professional.



'We actually looked at him at the start of the season and we're desperate to have another central defender in the building for the last seven matches.



'He will come into contention for Saturday but he won't be considered for the Leeds game because of the clause in the deal.



'I would like to thank Kevin Blackwell for his help in letting us bring Rui to the club.'
