The Hull Daily Mail has reported that talks are under way over a new contract for defender Liam Rosenior.
The paper claims the 30-year-old star is a key figure in Steve Bruce’s plans for the immediate future of the Tigers, which makes it important for them to tie him down to a new deal.
The reported offer that will go on the table is a contract covering the next two years.
Rosenior is an important defender for a variety of reasons.
He has a good level of Premier League experience, which is important in relation to any younger player coming into the team he can help.
He’s also a versatile player and can fill in down either side of the defence, which offers Bruce value in terms of squad cover.
A quick resolution is unlikely, though nothing for Hull fans to worry about, because the paper also claims Rosenior wants specific things in his new contract.
The report suggests he wants to step up from a coaching perspective, which will please the manager because it shows he wants an extra level of responsibility.
All in all, it’s an extremely positive update.
