Curtis Davies reacts on Twitter after signing new Hull City contract

Curtis Davies has signed a new two-year deal at Hull City.

Curtis Davies says that he hopes he can spend the next two seasons at Hull City playing Premier League football.

Davies penned a new deal which will keep him at the KC Stadium until 2018 earlier today.

The central defender has been in fine form this season, and it was important for Steve Bruce’s side that he committed his future.

Davies has made 37 appearances for the Tigers so far this season, and he has established his place in Bruce’s side’s defence.

The 31-year-old’s power, combined with his ability in possesion, makes him one of the standout defenders in the Championship and he will be looking to use his experience to help Hull over the line in the race for promotion.

As things stand, Hull are in fourth place in the Championship table, but they are only two points away from the automatic promotion spaces, and they have a game in hand.

Hull’s next match comes against promotion rivals Middlesbrough, and Davies will be hoping to celebrate signing his new deal with a victory.
