Player News - Hull City

Date: Team: Pos:

Hull City's fate was already sealed but it was still a bitter pill to swallow in their final top flight match, getting manhandled 1-7 by Tottenham.

If one was at the KCOM Stadium today, you wouldn't have guessed the crowd were watching a relegated side getting beat by a lopsided score, but to the credit of Hull City supporters, the atmosphere was generally positive. Marco Silva nearly pulled off the impossible, and deserves much of the credit. Remember, this is a side that could barely piece together an 18-man squad on Matchday One. Sam Clucas scored a consolation goal in this one, his third of the season. The fact that left him just one goal short of sharing the team lead in that department (Robert Snodgrass having departed) tells you the story.

Hull will entertain Tottenham in their dead rubber match on Sunday without the services of centre-back Harry Maguire who may have played his last game for the club.

Maguire was forced off at Selhurst Park last weekend because of a problem with his knee and the 24-year-old is struggling to recover in time bringing to an end to a disappointing campaign. The big defender has had a fine year and deservedly took the Players’ Player of the Year and the Fans’ Player of the Year at a recent awards ceremony but Leicester, Newcastle and Tottenham are prepared to offer Maguire a chance of remaining in the top-flight. Curtis Davies could return feature in his absence. Abel Hernandez [ankle] and Evandro [groin] are also set to miss the final Premier League game of the season while Moses Odubajo, Will Keane and David Meyler [all knee] remain on the sidelines. Ryan Mason [fractured skull] is back at the training ground but won't be considered just yet.

Hull City will be without a number of key players for their final game in the top flight against Spurs on Sunday.

Harry Maguire, Evandro, and Abel Hernandez have been ruled out of the encounter with the league's runners up. Maguire was forced off in the abysmal defeat to Crystal Palace with a knee injury after a clash with Benteke and has not recovered. Evandro suffered a groin strain in the same game and is unavailable, while Hernandez is not in condition to play after missing the Eagles match with an ankle complaint.

Reports in both the Express and Star are linking Hull manager Marco Silva to the job at Wolves.

Wolves are expected to part ways with Paul Lambert in the coming weeks as they hope to win promotion to the PL next season. Having previously being linked with the job when the club were taken over, Silva is viewed as the best man to achieve the board's goal. Should Silva decide to leave as expected, he won't be short of options. Watford are now in the market after sacking Walter Mazzarri, while West Ham, Southampton, and Porto are also reportedly interested.

Hull City's current manager Marco Silva still hasn't decided if he wants to stay at the club next season in the Championship or not.

The Tigers' fate was confirmed after their calamitous 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend, but the Portuguese will meet the club's owners before the final game of the season on Sunday against Spurs. Silva is believed to have signed a 6 month deal in January with a clause for him to extend the deal by 12 months if he wishes. He intends to resolve "what is best first for the future of the club and also for my career as well" with the owners". He added: "The club needs to understand what they need to do differently in the future, and we’ll do that next." He went on to criticise Hull's preseason preparation, where they lost a number of first team players who were not replaced, before then-manager Steve Bruce suddenly departed the club too.

Ryan Mason says he is "looking forward to coming back a better player" but insists "there is no timescale" on his return to first-team action.

Mason has been sidelined since January after suffering a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill which left him in hospital for 8 days and pretty much housebound for six-to-eight weeks. But now, Mason is on the road to recovery following a return to the clubs training ground: "Coming back is a massive step for me," he revealed. "There were times when I just couldn’t be around noise, and people talking in the same room would have been too much for me. But I feel this is the right time." However, the 25-year-old is keen to stress that he won’t be taking any unnecessary risks during his recovery: "I’m just taking each day as it comes. I’ve got some strength back but I’m still dealing with a lot of fatigue. I’m respecting my body and listening to what it is telling me."

Liverpool's Lazar Markovic, who is on loan at Hull City, has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

Markovic limped off in last weekend's disappointing defeat to Sunderland at the KCOM Stadium, and will now miss the Premier League status defining final two games against Crystal Palace and Spurs.

Hull City's highly-rated centre-back Harry Maguire insisted on Thursday that talks about extending his contract are on hold while he focuses on securing Hull's Premier League status next season.

Maguire, 24, is moving into the final year of his current deal, but since breaking into the first-team earlier this season, a number of fine displays have seen him linked with a number of other Premier League clubs with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Everton among those reportedly interested. Speaking to the media ahead of The Tigers' massive clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday, Maguire said: "Obviously every footballer wants to be playing in the Premier League, myself included." With Maguire's future at the club probably hinging on the side's next two PL games, he added: "Hopefully the big players turn up and we get the three points. I definitely think there's a twist yet, I think if you look before the weekend we were in the driving seat and not many would have predicted the results over the weekend so who says there's not going to be another twist and turn? We're all very well prepared to go to Palace and get the result what we need."

Lazar Markovic has emerged as an early for Sundays crunch clash at Crystal Palace after he picked up an injury against Sunderland.

The Liverpool loanee, who has impressed in recent games, was forced off due to a muscular problem and his involvement this weekend hangs in the balance. Markovic scored vital goals against Watford and Middlesbrough last month and if he fails to recover, then his absence from the side, presents Marco Silva with a selection headache. Realistically Hull need at least four-points from their remaining matches to give them a fighting chance of staying up with Markovic an integral part of those plans. Evandro looks poised for a recall while Silva may consider a slight change in formation with Palace typically adopting a 4-2-3-1/4-5-1. The Eagles have looked frail defensively since losing James Tomkins, Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho to injury in April and Silva may throw caution to the wind with Tottenham at home on the final day.
May 9 - 5:31 AM

Hull City missed a golden opportunity to break away from the final relegation spot in a 2-0 home loss to Sunderland.

Marco Silva's first home loss as Hull manager, and first home loss since 2014, came at the worst possible time with the Tigers sitting in 17th place just two points above Swansea City. And against last-place Sunderland, who became the first club to be relegation last week, points seemed imminent. Despite 16 shots, Hull couldn't manage a goal against the leaky Black Cats defense, even with reigning PFA player of the month in Kamil Grosicki after his three assists in April. The Tigers let in two second-half goals on set pieces, which proved to be their weak point against a more physical Sunderland.

Hull City are interested in making Andrea Ranocchia's loan deal from Inter permanent and reports in Italy suggest they will not succeed without parting with £8.4 million.

Ranocchia, capped 24 times for Italy, was once considered to be a rising star of Italian football and captain of Inter while in his early 20s. However, poor form and a merry-go-round of managers at the club saw him relegated to the fringes and in need of a fresh start. Since coming to Hull, he has been a revelation, building a good partnership with Harry Maguire in the heart of the Tigers' defence and scoring twice in April. He will surely leave the San Siro in the summer, and it seems Hull will open their wallets to extend his stay with them.
May 4 - 1:35 PM

Marco Silva's miraculous work at Hull has not gone unnoticed by three other Premier League clubs as well as his own.

Upon taking over in January, Silva stated that he needed to perform a miracle to save the Tigers from the drop, but he has guided them outside the drop-zone with three gameweeks left to be played. Should he accomplish his mission, Hull will naturally be desperate to extend his contract and allow him to continue his work. In addition to that, West Ham, Southampton, and Watford are all reportedly considering an approach for his services. Bilic, Puel, and Mazzarri are all potentially facing the sack at the end of the season after disappointing campaigns. A host of European clubs including Porto are keeping tabs on Silva too. He has not ruled out staying in his current post but he will be understandably tempted by offers from elsewhere.

Hull City won a point in dramatic circumstances at Saint Mary's in a 0-0 draw with Southampton.

It was a borefest in the first half, with little attacking of note. The home side received a few boos as they walked in for the interval, but in truth they failed to spur them into action. Manolo Gabbiadini was hauled off just before the hour mark, much to the disdain of fantasy managers across the globe. Southampton were wasteful from set-pieces throughout the encounter, lacking Ward-Prowse's speciality as he sat on the bench. The had forced Jakupovic into just one save before the earned a penalty in added time after N'Diaye knocked down Yoshida illegally. However, Hull's 'keeper got low to the left to save Tadic's penalty. The result meant that relegation rivals Sunderland have had their gloomy fate confirmed, while Marco Silva's men have edged closer to unexpected safety.

Hull City will once again be without the services of Omar Elabdellaoui when they face Southampton at St Mary’s this weekend.

The Norwegian international has been struggling with a back problem since March and Marcos Silva will have to wait for another week, at least, before Elabdellaoui is ready for a return to first-team action. Everton loanee Oumar Niasse is available for selection after the Football Association decided to rescind the red card he was issued versus Watford in game week thirty-four. The Tigers have no fresh injury concerns but Ryan Mason [skull fracture], Moses Odubajo, Will Keane and David Meyler [all knee] remain on the sidelines. Greg Luer and Brian Lenihan continue to build fitness with the development side.
Apr 27 - 8:01 AM

Hull City striker Oumar Niasse's appeal against a three match ban incurred after his sending off last weekend has been successful.

Niasse received a contentious red card from referee Bobby Madley in Hull's 2-0 win over Watford at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday after a tackle on Watford's M'Baye Niang. The decision looked set to scupper Marco Silva's plans for the final weeks of the season, but the red card and consequent suspension have now been rescinded by the Football Association. Niasse will be available to travel to Southampton this Saturday.
