Exclusive: Hull City plot fresh Grant McCann agreement as Tigers prepare for Championship return

Published

Hull City are set to offer Grant McCann fresh terms at the KCOM Stadium and will even tie him down longer-term after promotion, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World. 

McCann was appointed the club’s manager ahead of the 2019/20 season. Despite overseeing a largely positive start to the season, the Tigers were relegated at the end of the campaign following a dismal collapse on the back of losing Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki.

However, the Hull board retained the faith of McCann back in the summer and he’s delivered a response at the KCOM, winning promotion and the League One title.

A source has now exclusively revealed to Football League World that Hull plan on offering McCann a new contract with the club, moving him away from his existing 12-month rolling deal and onto a longer-term agreement to ward off any interest in the 41-year-old.

Hull were promoted back to the Championship on April 24th, when goals from Josh Magennis and Mallik Wilks secured a 2-1 win over Lincoln City.

McCann watched the Tigers secure the League One title with minimal fuss too on the weekend gone by, with Hull 3-1 winners over Wigan Athletic at the KCOM Stadium to spark wild celebrations.

The 2020/21 season concludes on Sunday for Hull when they take on Charlton Athletic at The Valley in a midday kick-off.

Despite having nothing to play for from a Hull perspective, Charlton are looking to keep their play-off dream alive with a win.
