iSelect Titans foundation second-rower Mark Minichiello will finish his career in England after agreeing to a two-year deal with Hull.

The 32-year-old Italian international will leave the NRL after more than 250 club appearances, five for City Origin and a memorable World Cup experience with older brother Anthony in 2013.

"While it is disappointing to leave the Titans after eight enjoyable seasons it had to come to an end at some stage and I'm excited about a new challenge and I can't wait to get over there and experience a different league," Minichiello said who has been in tremendous form in 2014.

"It was a big decision, I have been in the NRL for thirteen seasons now and have played over 250 games here but I think it was maybe just the right time for me to make the change and I guess accept a new challenge.

"Hull have a very proud history and it's every player's ambition to hopefully get a chance to play at Old Trafford [venue for the Super League grand final] or Wembley [Challenge Cup final] and I will be no different."

Minichiello holds the Titans club record of 169 appearances among his 255 in first grade, and recently joined Anthony as only the third brothers to reach the 250-game milestone.

This Sunday's clash with Manly at Cbus Super Stadium will be the second last home appearance for 'Mini' who will have a, no doubt, emotional farewell to fans in the round 26 clash against the Bulldogs on Sunday September 7.
