We are delighted to announce the signing of Denver Hume on a permanent deal from Portsmouth.
The 25-year-old left back has put pen to paper on deal until the end of the season following his release from the League One club.
Ashington-born Hume began his career with Sunderland and made his professional debut back in 2018 in a 3-0 win against Wolves in the Championship.
During the 2019/20 season, Hume established himself at the Stadium of Light, making 38 appearances in all competitions, helping Sunderland to an 8th place finish in League One.
The following campaign he helped the Black Cats achieve a play-off spot and added a promotion to his CV in 2022 when Sunderland earned promotion to the Championship.
Ahead of the 2022/23 season, Hume joined Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee and made 22 appearances for the League One side before moving to Blundell Park.
After sealing Hume’s signature, Head Coach David Artell said, “We are delighted to get Denver over the line, he is an extremely talented boy. You don’t get bought by a club like Portsmouth if you’re not a good player!’’
“I’ve come across him before when he was at Sunderland and Portsmouth and in those games he was outstanding. He’s a player that can go both inside and outside the pitch, up and down.”
“He’s a good character, I spoke to John Harley at Portsmouth and one of the players there as well about him and they both gave him glowing recommendations, so I know he’s a good kid.”
“We want him to come in, hit the ground running, be solid defensively, get up the pitch like we know he can and affect the game. So I’m excited to be working with Denver and hopefully he can help us win some games.’’
