‘Not the time’ – Liam Rosenior confirms firm Hull City stance over player discussions

Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has said no discussions have taken place over player contracts with a handful nearing the end of their deals.

Hull City are right in the play-off picture as we approach the end of the Championship season. They sit 7th in the Championship table, three points off the top six with a game in hand on Norwich City above them.

Four consecutive draws have seen them miss a few chances to get into 6th, but ample time remains for them to make the break into the play-offs before the campaign ends.

As expected, the full focus will be on the fight to move into the top six. And, as a result, some other important matters such as player contracts look to have been put on the backburner for now.

Hull City boss Rosenior was quizzed on discussions with those who are out of contract at the end of the season but with next season’s division still undecided, talks have not kicked off yet.

“We’ve had not had any discussions with any player,” Rosenior told Hull Live.

“It’s not the time, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”

Who is this?

The players out of contract

Of the Hull City players approaching the end of their deals, midfielders Adama Traore and Greg Docherty and full-back Cyrus Christie are the headline names. Veteran striker Billy Sharp and 20-year-old Vaughn Covil are also out of contract in the summer.

For now, it seems all will have to wait until the campaign’s conclusion for clarity over their futures.

Decisions may well depend on how the Hull City promotion push pans out, so committing to a new agreement now when matters could change shortly wouldn’t exactly be a wise move.

It’s a sensible approach from the Tigers as it also allows Rosenior and his team the ability to full focus on footballing matters. They’re determined to earn a place in the play-off spots and if they can, a long-awaited return to the Premier League could be just three games away.
