NO HULL CITY EXTENSION FOR HUDDLESTONE
Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone won’t be signing a contract extension at the club according to manager Shota Arveladze. The Hull City boss told reporters that Tom Huddlestone was given the chance to say his farewell to the fans during the Nottingham Forest game on the final weekend of the regular season as far this season’s English Championship football is concerned.
The home game with Nottingham Forest earlier this month gave Tom Huddlestone the perfect opportunity to say his goodbyes at the MKM Stadium. His current deal at Hull City will expire in a matter of months and there would be no new contract for the 35-year-old.
Hull City midfielder Huddlestone returned to the club last summer after one year without a club. He had been released by Derby County at the end of his contract at the club in the summer of 2020. It was his second spell at Hull City having spent four years at the club in his first spell with the Tigers following the £5m transfer from North London team Tottenham Hotspur.
Tom Huddlestone signed for Hull City from Spurs in 2013 and he went on to make 161 appearances for the Tigersbefore signing for Derby County in 2017. He had an attacking return of seven goals and 15 assists in his first Hull City spell. For his second Hull City spell, Huddlestone made 12 appearances for the club with 11 of the 12 appearances coming in the Championship. As quoted by media outlet Hull Live, Hull City manager Shota Arveladze stated that he wanted to give Huddlestone a farewell during the last game of the season, at home to Nottingham Forest which ended in a 1-1 draw. Nottingham Forest substitute Brennan Johnson gave his team the lead from the penalty spot in the third minute of stoppage time before Keane Lewis-Potter equalised for the Tigers a minute later to earn a point from the game.
