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.
