10 July 2019 : Eaves Moves Up Another Level With Tigers Deal
Former Yeovil Town striker Tom Eaves has moved into the Championship, following two highly successful seasons with League One side Gillingham. He has signed a three year contract with Championship side Hull City, with his new club also having the option of an additional year that would take him through to the summer of 2023.

His time at the Priestfield Stadium has transformed a career that seemed to be on the slide during his single season with Yeovil Town during 2016-17. Having netted seven goals in 48 appearances for the Glovers, including just four goals in League Two, Eaves went up a level to play for the Gills, and promptly rattled in 40 goals in 97 appearances, including 38 at League One level. He picked up Gillingham's Player Of The Season Award for the 2018-19 season but announced his own departure on Twitter this morning.

Eaves now moves up another level to second tier football where the 27 year old will play under Head Coach Grant McCann, who said of the player's signature:

"Tom will be a great addition for us. He's got a different dynamic to what we've got and brings something different to our forward line. He comes here with a good pedigree. He was probably one of the best centre forwards in League One last season in terms of the goals he was scoring in a team that wasn't around the top end of the table, so we're really pleased to bring him here."
