Hull City goalkeeper signs new one-year deal with the Tigers

Hull City goalkeeper Callum Burton has signed a new one-year deal, according to the club’s official website.

The 21-year-old shot stopper has impressed for the Tigers’ under-23 development squad and has been rewarded with a new deal until the end of the 2018/19 season.

He joined Hull City for an undisclosed fee in the summer from League One side Shrewsbury Town. He started his career with the Shrews and despite only making one senior appearance for them, he was highly rated by them. He has represented England at U16, U17 and U18 level.

He spent time on loan at Market Drayton Town, Workington, Nuneaton Town and AFC Telford United during his time at Shrewsbury to gain first-team experience.

Hull City loaned him out to National League North side Salford City in November and he played three times for them before returning to the Tigers. He was then on the bench for the Championship in their game against Norwich City in February.

With Hull’s current number one Allan McGregor’s contract expiring in the summer, this would leave the Tigers short on goalkeeping options. David Marshall would most likely be their first choice goalkeeper next season and then Will Mannion and Callum Burton would compete for the number two jersey.

Next up for the Tigers in the league is a tricky home tie against Aston Villa with their former manager Steve Bruce making his first trip back to the KCOM Stadium since his departure in 2016.
