Hull City have today released a statement where they have confirmed the club have received no bids for goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic. Media speculation has been intense over the last few days in linking the Swiss goalie with a move to Leicester City.
The 32-year-old ended last season as the first choice keeper at the KCOM Stadium, making 27 appearances for the club as the Tigers suffered relegation out of the Premier League just a season after returning. New under the management of Leonid Slutsky, he may still be able to call upon Jakupovic after all.
The statement released by the football club wanted to squash any rumours of an impending departure from the club in the form of Jakupovic,
Contrary to a report in the media this morning, the club would like to place on record that we have not accepted any offers or received any bids for Eldin Jakupovic.
“The club will always confirm transfers if and when they are completed and announce via our official channels.
Jakupovic has been with the club since signing five years ago on a free transfer. He has had a loan spell away at Leyton Orient during that time too. Last season was the first time he has really enjoyed a run in the Tigers side since joining. He had mainly been used as a cup goalkeeper previously under different managers. Nevertheless, he proved his worth last season, dislodging big money signing David Marshall from the team early on and never looking back. His future remains unclear in the sense that Leicester may still be interested, but no bid has been issued right now.
