Hull City forward Keane Lewis-Potter is likely to sign a new contract with the club according to a recent report from BBC Radio Humberside’s David Burns.
The Tigers youngster has made 25 appearances in all competitions this season, and has chipped in with seven goals and one assist this term for Grant McCann’s side, although a large number of those outings have been from the substitutes bench.
Hull are currently sat second in the League One table, and Lewis-Potter will be hoping that he can play his part in their push for promotion back into the Championship at the first time of asking.
It has recently been reported by Hull Live that Lewis-Potter is attracting interest from a number of Championship and Premier League clubs, with McCann recently voicing his frustrations at the forward’s representatives over their handling of his new contract offer.
But the 19-year-old is reportedly set to sign a new deal at the KCOM Stadium it seems, although it is claimed by Burns that Lewis-Potter has been given an ultimatum of signing a new contract with the club, or being replaced by a January signing, which leaves him with little choice but to commit his future to the League One club.
Plenty of Hull City supporters took to social media to react to this latest update on the player’s future at the KCOM Stadium.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
I mean I want him to sign but holding a young lad to ransom looks abysmal on the clubs front, especially when he’s one of our own.

If true, a shame it has come to that….
More importantly, when will the club be sold to people that understand what a football club means to its community?

Wouldn’t be surprised to see him sign and still be subjected to the bench as further punishment. I really wouldn’t

Hope this ultimatum isn't true and he wants out at the next opportunity. Positive if he's signing and getting back in the lineup though.

Excellent motivation then.

I just want KLP to sign and then start the next game at centre forward.

If this is true it is an absolutely horrible way to treat a player, let alone a hometown young player that could be the key to promotion this season.. should be showing him respect, not threatening him.. #AllamOut https://t.co/UkhAqggJ85
