Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has been linked with a move to domestic treble winners Manchester City, a transfer that could significantly benefit Hull City. Prior to joining the Foxes in 2017, Maguire spent three years at the KCOM Stadium before departing in a deal rising up to £17 million. As part of Maguire's agreement when joining Leicester, the Tigers have a 15% sell-on clause on the 26-year-old, which would see them entitled to a large windfall on any profits made by Brendan Rodgers' side. The Daily Mail reports that Sky Blues manager Pep Guardiola wants to bring Maguire to the Etihad Stadium as a replacement for long-standing captain Vincent Kompany, who led out his side for the final time on Saturday during their 6-0 FA Cup final victory over Watford at Wembley Stadium. Sportsmail also report that Guardiola himself told Maguire how highly he rates the former Tigers and Sheffield United centre-back, although, such a move may break the world record transfer fee for a … [Read more...] about Why Harry Maguire could lead to a cash injection for Hull City

Hull City's 2019-20 Championship season will see them face two Yorkshire sides that were not competing in the second tier last season. Relegation from the Premier League for Huddersfield Town and promotion for Barnsley out of League One will see the Tigers reunited with local trips to both the John Smith's Stadium and Oakwell. One nearby side that they won't be playing next season is Sheffield United, whose second place finish in the league during the 2018-19 campaign earned them promotion back to the top-flight for the first time in 12 years. Barnsley's return to the second tier will see them joined by Luton Town, who lifted the League One title earlier this month. The other promotion spot to the Championship is yet to be decided, with Sunderland and Charlton Athletic contesting the play-off final next Sunday at Wembley. As City will spend the coming months turning part of their focus onto the six unknown entities that they will be facing in the league next season, here is what … [Read more...] about What Hull City should expect from 2019-20 Championship arrivals
Hull City recorded one of the lowest operating losses of any side in the Championship during the 2017-18 season. Research from the Daily Mail shows that sides competing in England's second tier made a combined total operating loss of over £510 million, although City only contributed to a very fractional amount of the league's total. In total, City recorded operating losses of £4,556,341, the fourth lowest out of the 22 clubs whose figures have been published. The two clubs with the lowest operating loss totals, Barnsley and Burton Albion, were both relegated. Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham both posted operating losses of over £59 million, however, both sides earned promotion that season, displaying that for them, it was a gamble worth taking. Cardiff City, the other team to earn promotion that season, ranked sixth in the standings, with Aston Villa, Derby County and Birmingham City all posting losses between £38.5 milllion and £54 million, all of whom … [Read more...] about Hull City’s operating losses one of the Championship’s lowest
Hull City are expected to announce their retained list for the 2019-20 season inside the next 24 hours in what will be the first stage of a summer rebuild. Departures are guaranteed as the club cuts its wage bill, as well as making room for the necessary reinforcements to arrive at the KCOM Stadium this summer. It is not yet a given that all nine out-of-contract players will move on but what does the future have in store for those with deals due to expire in just six weeks? Fraizer Campbell Of all the uncertainty that comes at the end of a season, it is the doubts surrounding Campbell’s future that are causing most anxiety to supporters. The striker has been told that the offer of an extension will eventually come but it will inevitably be on a dramatically reduced wage. City were unwilling to trigger an additional 12 months on his initial contract signed in July 2017 and that has left the door ajar for others to declare their interest. The Tigers can only hope theirs is the best … [Read more...] about What next for Hull City’s out-of-contract stars?
Hull City centre forward Fraizer Campbell is still waiting to be offered a contract extension ahead of his current deal expiring at the end of next month. Campbell heads up a group of City stars due to become free agents this summer and at present remains in the dark over his long-term future. The Tigers have intimated to the 31-year-old’s representatives that he will be offered a chance to stay at the KCOM Stadium for at least another 12 months but a formal proposal is yet to be tabled. Any extension to Campbell’s time at the KCOM Stadium would have to come on reduced terms. City have already made it clear they are not in a position to trigger the one-year clause in his existing deal and next season’s budget will demand a significant fall in wages. Campbell is willing to listen to what City offer before reaching a decision over his next move but the form produced last season ensures he will not be short of suitors. As reported last month, Huddersfield Town are among … [Read more...] about Fraizer Campbell still in the dark over his Hull City future
