Player News - Hull City

Date: Team: Pos:

David Meyler continued Swansea City's post-United hangover as he scored the only goal in Hull City's 1-0 win to send the Swans out of the League Cup.

It was a decidedly reserve side that Garry Monk fielded to face recently relegated Hull City. That showed as the Swans shot frequently but inaccurately throughout the match. Hull City only managed six shots total but five of them were on target and one went in compared to 18 shots, four on target and none in for the Premier League side. At least the Swans can take solace in the fact that their first team group was barely involved.

Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom will be joining teammate Isaac Hayden on loan at the KC Stadium for the 2015-16 season.

Akpom has been impressive when he has been given a chance in pre-season matches and in early round Cup matches. A move to relegated Hull City will presumably give him experience as he attempts to make the difficult leap from the Arsenal youth team to the Arsenal senior squad. The talent appears to be there but with Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud ahead of him it was always unlikely he was going to get significant playing time anywhere other than the Arsenal U21 side. Arsenal supporters will have good cause to tune in to Hull City matches this season.

20-year-old Arsenal center back/holding midfielder Isaac Hayden has gone out on loan to Hull City for the 2015-16 season.

Arsenal have been active today signing Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla to contract extensions and loaning Jon Toral to Birmingham City and Hayden to Hull City. The 20-year-old has represented England at each age level and now looks to pick up his first taste of first team football that means something in the Championship with newly relegated Hull City. If he can secure a place in Steve Bruce's line-up the it will be an invaluable experience as the player looks to secure a spot in the senior Arsenal squad over the next few years.

Chuba Akpom scored three and Jack Wilshere scored the other and chipped in an assist as Arsenal beat a Singapore XI in their first competitive match of the pre-season.

With supporters clamoring for another forward, Chuba Akpom started the process of putting his name forward for more playing time. A Singapore XI certainly isn't Manchester United or Chelsea but he has to start somewhere and he did so in style. Jack Wilshere continued the great form that he showed for England in Euro qualifying earlier in the summer. Arsenal will take a step up in level of competition on Saturday with a match against Everton at Singapore Stadium.

Tom Huddlestone looks set to remain at Hull City – for the moment at least – after undergoing minor surgery to remedy a persistent ankle problem.

Huddlestone has been heavily linked with a move away from the KC Stadium with some reports even suggesting a deal had been agreed for around $8 million to Aston Villa. However any move before the start of the new campaign looks highly unlikely after Huddlestone went under the knife to clean out his joint. The procedure itself was pretty straight-forward and Huddlestone is expected to be available for the season opener in early August and should he hit the ground running then interested parties will have until September 1, 2015 to thrash out a a deal. Steve Bruce will be hoping his side can make a swift return to the BPL but the enormity of the task cannot be underestimated having released a number of first team players including the likes of Paul McShane, Liam Rosenior and Maynor Figueroa.

Tim Sherwood is ready to make a £5.5m bid for Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

Huddlestone is a solid midfielder who Hull City don't need in the Championship and should provide Aston Villa with good depth at the midfielder position. He is unlikely to be a fantasy stud by any stretch of the imagination as he averaged just four fantasy points per match this past season, but he could help Aston Villa avoid relegation next season with some much needed depth, especially since they have lost Tom Cleverley to Everton.

Hull City have released a statement confirming Robert Snodgrass has not suffered a setback during his recovery from a serious knee injury and the midfielder will continue to step up his rehab.

Steve Bruce invested heavily in the Scottish international last summer but the unfortunate Snodgrass suffered a terrible knee dislocation just 40 minutes into his Tigers’ career ruling him out for between 9-12 months. His loss coupled with injuries to other key players - Nikica Jelavic [21 starts] following knee surgery and Mo Diame [2 starts in 2015] due to a persistent knee problem - ultimately had a huge bearing as Hull struggled to absorb their losses with such a small squad. Recovery of the trio is paramount if Hull hope to bounce straight back into the BPL.

Leicester City are interested in Hull City defender Curtis Davies.

Davies was injured for the latter part of the season and was a big part of why Hull were relegated. His presence was missed once he was ruled out and Hull struggled. He brings a good mix of skill and experience and is rightfully being pursued by a number of teams including Leicester City, Crystal Palace, and Watford. Davies can be a fantasy star due to phantom points alone, so he will be a good fantasy pick next season if he's at Leicester City.

Steve Harper, Liam Rosenior, Paul McShane, Maynor Figueroa, Yannick Sagbo and Joe Dudgeon were all released by Hull City as the club prepares for life in the Championship.

Harper, who ended the season as Hull City's first choice keeper at the age of 40, was released. Between Harper, Rosenior, McShane and Figueroa the club released veteran players that were probably all on higher wages than feasible for a club that will be dealing with life in the second tier next season. Harper, in particular, showed that he is still a viable reserve and could catch on elsewhere in the league if he chooses to continue his career.

Abel Hernandez has been suspended for the first three matches of next season for a punch thrown at Phil Jones in Hull City's final match of the season.

Whether Hernandez is still with Hull City in the Championship next season remains to be seen but if he is, he will miss out on the club's first three matches. The incident was not seen by any of the match officials during the course of play so it was eligible to be ruled on after the fact. Rumors have the Uruguay international leaving the club over the summer as they look to trim their wage bill for life in the Championship.

Alex Bruce, Steve Bruce and the entire Bruce family have been relegated after a final day draw with Manchester United.

Hull City needed a win and a Newcastle draw to stay up. Instead they got a draw and a Newcastle win meaning they will be relegated. Hull City supporters will be frustrated that they couldn't even manage a goal in their effort to stay up...even after Marouane Fellaini was sent off in the 77th minute.

Jake Livermore, who remains suspended for a positive drug test, will be Steve Bruce's only enforced absentee for their season finale against Manchester United.

It is all on the line for Hull City as Manchester United come to the KC Stadium looking to guarantee their former player Steve Bruce and his charges are relegated. Hull City need to win against the fourth place team in the league and get help from West Ham who must win or draw at St. James' Park for Hull City to stay up. Bruce will likely name an unchanged side for the match which means Nikica Jelavic, Dame N'Doye, Ahmed Elmohamady and Robbie Brady are likely the most interesting fantasy prospects.

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore has been suspended for the final two weeks of the season following a positive test for cocaine.

Steve Bruce will be doubly mad about Livermore's suspension. There's the normal aggravation that a manager has with a player who gets suspended for something entirely avoidable. This is compounded by the fact that Hull City are fighting for their Premier League lives and now they'll have to do it a man down. Whether there will be longer term ramifications for Livermore will likely be revealed over the summer.

Tom Huddlestone bounced back from a disastrous outing against Arsenal but Hull City dropped a 1-0 home decision to Burnley to push them closer to relegation.

Tom Huddlestone had a shockingly bad match against Arsenal on Monday. Personally, he rebounded to at least some extent with a shot on target, two corners won, a blocked shot, a pass intercepted, a tackle won, and a successful cross. It was not enough, though, as Hull City couldn't score against scrappy Burnley and lost to the already-relegated Clarets 1-0 at the KC Stadium. Not good news for Steve Bruce's men as they face Spurs and Manchester United over the final two weeks as they search for survival.

Jake Livermore was poor against Arsenal on Monday and now faces a late fitness test ahead of Hull City's massive match against Burnley at the KC Stadium.

If Steve Bruce is going to get the Livermore we saw on Monday - misplacing passes and being dispossessed in inopportune parts of the field - then maybe he'll be hoping that Livermore fails his fitness test. At his best, Livermore is an integral cog in Hull City's midfield but that certainly wasn't the case against Arsenal. With Hull City needing three points in the worst way, Bruce will likely be conservative with any injury decisions.
