Hull City have yesterday announced that they have exercised the right to extend the contract of 6 key players until the summer of 2018.
Some of Hull City’s key first team players, including Michael Dawson, Abel Hernandez, Jake Livermore, Harry Maguire, Andrew Robertson and Robert Snodgrass have had their contracts extended. These players, particularly Robert Snodgrass, are linked with moves away from the KCOM Stadium.
Hull City currently sit bottom of the Premier League table having accumulated 12 points from their opening 17 games. Hull City were the favourites to be relegated this season after the resignation of Steve Bruce before the season began. Top goalscorer Robert Snodgrass is one of those linked with a move away from Hull, having reportedly rejected a contract extension earlier this week. Snodgrass has been linked with a move to his boyhood favourite club Celtic as well as moves to other Premier League clubs such as Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion.
As well as Snodgrass, Abel Hernandez has also been linked away with moves away from the Premier League club. Hernandez scored 21 goals in last season’s Championship campaign which saw Hull City win the play-offs. However, Hernandez has only scored one goal in this Premier League campaign and has since been linked with moves back to Serie A clubs such as Fiorentina.
Also yesterday Hull City announced that 17-year-old defender Joshua Tymon has had his scholarship agreement extended until the 2017/18 season. The club activated this clause as it was in his contract. Tymon made a name for himself for his impressive display in an FA Cup match last season against Arsenal, the match finished 0-0.
