Grosicki wants answers on long-term Hull City future

20th September 2019, 14:48 by Chris Rivers

Kamil Grosicki says he is ready to talk about a new contract with Hull City and wants to begin negotiations soon after entering the last 12 months of his deal.

The Poland international recently brought up his 100th game for the Tigers after deciding against a move during the summer, with talk of a switch to Nottingham Forest and Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir eventually coming to nothing.

Hull were also thought to be weighing up whether to let the winger leave on a free transfer in a cost-cutting measure with Grosicki currently the top earner at the KCOM Stadium before deciding to retain his services.

Grosicki’s £27,000-per-week deal expires at the end of this season but there is a clause in his contract that could see the club extend his stay for a further 12 months.

Hull have until March to decide whether to activate the clause but Grosicki wants to know much sooner where his future lies.

“It’s not only my decision so we will see what happens in the future,” said Grosicki. “I am ready to stay and ready to talk about a new contract.

“I need to think about my future. I am not 20. I need to know what will be the next step. If I know as soon as possible then I will be comfortable and focus on football.”

The Tigers are likely to struggle to retain the 31-year-old’s services long-term given his current wages with Grosicki and Markus Henriksen the only players left at the club still on contracts agreed during the club’s last stint in the Premier League.

Hull paid £7million when signing Grosicki from Rennes in January 2017 and he has been a big hit in East Yorkshire, scoring twice this season to take his tally to 25 in Amber and Black.
