Grant McCann has provided an update on the situation, as per Hull Live: “A lot of the players are out of contract in the summer but they’ve all got options, so we don’t really see it like that. We can trigger the option whenever we want to trigger it. We’ll sit down in the next couple of weeks and get to the nuts and bolts of them, decide what we want to do.”

“It’s important for the players just to focus on the football. Control the controllables, that’s what we can do on the football pitch. We need to get back to playing the way we can and playing with a smile on our face.”
