‘Completely different world’ – Attacker opens up about Hull City exit

Keane Lewis-Potter has said the lure of Brentford and the Premier League was too ‘hard’ to turn down after leaving Hull City.

Hull City cashed in on the winger in the summer of 2022 when the Bees came calling.

Lewis-Potter, who is now 23-years-old, rose up through the academy ranks of the Tigers.

He has opened up about his exit from the MKM Stadium and has said, as per a report by The Mirror: “I’ve still got so many friends in Hull. I grew up there. But the Premier League move came and it’s just so hard to turn down; that was my dream, to play in the Premier League. That’s every kid’s dream.”

He added: “All the young boys who came through at Hull are very close. Playing with him (Jarrod Bowen) for a bit and training with him was great. 

“It’s tough moving from Hull to London clubs. It’s a completely different world. But you look at him, he’s got used to the games, to the tempo, and you always know yourself how good you are. He’s shown that now for two or three seasons after finding his feet.”

Hull enquired about the possibility of bringing Lewis-Potter back on loan in January, as per HullLive reporter Barry Cooper on the The 1904 Club podcast (30.44). However, Brentford didn’t want him to leave.

He has made 28 appearances for the Bees in all competitions since his switch down to London and he has chipped in with two goals. The Hull-born man penned a six-year contract at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Lewis-Potter rose up through the academy ranks of the Tigers and was a regular for his local side at various youth levels. He had a loan stint away in non-league at Bradford Park Avenue as a youngster to get some experience under his belt.

He then broke into the first-team of the Tigers and helped them gain promotion from League One under former boss Grant McCann back in 2021. He played 122 games in all competitions before his exit and fired 30 goals.

Brentford forked out an initial £16.4million (Transfermarkt) to bring him down south.

His spell in the top flight to date under Thomas Frank has been up and down but he still has plenty of time on his side.

Hull are aiming to get promoted this term under Liam Rosenior and are aiming to be league rivals with the Bees in the next campaign. The Tigers drew 1-1 at home to West Brom last time out.
