‘We’re very competitive’ – Hull City chief makes transfer pledge ahead of the summer

Hull City vice-chairman Tan Kesler has insisted they will remain ambitious in the transfer market this summer, even if the club don’t get promoted this season.

Hull City are currently eyeing a place in the Championship play-offs this term and are sat in 7th place, three points behind Norwich City in 6th.

It is hard for the Tigers to plan for next term with it unknown what league they will be in.

However, Kesler has said they will look to be competitive regardless, as per a report by The Yorkshire Post: “I’m never going to sit here and tell you our next ambition is to be 10th and stay in the division – we’re not people like this, we’re very competitive. We will try to continue that if we’re not promoted.

“We will look for different sets of players skills and certain players will stay. We’ve already secured certain players for our future, whether it’s (Jaden) Philogene (inset), or Ozan (Tufan), Abdus (Omur), we are bringing talent in.

“If we don’t lose the other talent we are going to be competing to the same standard but we’ll always try to compete at that level.”

Hull City transfer plans

Hull have been ambitious since Acun Ilicali’s takeover back in January 2022.

The Turkish media mogul has backed the club heavily since buying the East Yorkshire club and they have made eye-catching permanent additions like Jean Michael Seri, Ozan Tufan and Jaden Philogene, as well as loan signings such as Fabio Carvalho, Anass Zaroury and Liam Delap, among others.

Kesler is a key man behind the scenes for the Tigers and is involved in the negotiations with players.

Even if they miss out on promotion, Hull will still be confident of mounting another push for promotion.

It is hard with the financial restrictions in place for teams in the Football League without parachute payments. However, the Tigers are an attractive club to play for these days, as proven by the quality of player they have been able to attract over recent window.

They have a highly-rated young coach in Liam Rosenior and a distinct way of playing.

Hull also have a proven track record of helping individuals reach the top level. Andy Robertson, Harry Maguire, Jarrod Bowen and Keane Lewis-Potter have all been sold on to the league above, whilst it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Jacob Greaves and Philogene follow suit in the near future.

The Tigers are currently away in Turkey for a training camp during the international break. They are back in action on Good Friday with a home clash against Stoke City.
