Hull City are in the race for promotion to the Premier League.
However, a run of just one win in their last eight matches has seen Steve Bruce’s side slip to fourth in the table, some nine points adrift of Middlesbrough and the top two with only six games remaining.
As quoted by the Sun, midfielder Mo Diame has issued a warning to the club by telling reporters he will return to the top-flight with or without Hull, stating: “I will return to the Premier League.”
The former West Ham United man joined Hull in the summer of 2014, signing a three-year contract.
He has been a mainstay in Bruce’s side ever since, scoring seven goals and adding a further four assists in 34 Championship encounters so far this season.
Despite Derby County and Boro spending the most in transfer fees last summer, many still predicted Hull to be the most likely to return to the top flight as they retained a number of good players from last season.
However, wastefulness in front of goal has been their problem for much of the campaign and a failure to break teams down, especially on their travels, has seen them fade away at the wrong time of the season.
