Eldin Jakupovic is set to leave Hull City

The 30-year-old covered the Tigers net as Allan McGregor and Steve Harper suffered injuries during last season in the Premier League, but was then shoved back down the pecking order after their recoveries.

He’s previously had two loan spells with now League Two side Leyton Orient, but claims he wants a move to the Championship or the Premier League with opportunities for first team football.

The move could leave Hull without a back up goalkeeper as former Newcastle stopper Steve Harper considers retirement from football.

It’ll leave Steve Bruce with a new problem to solve in finding a new back up keeper ahead of next season.

His side were relegated from the Premier League last year after not having enough goals in their side to keep them afloat, and they’ll undoubtedly hope for promotion again this year.

Hull fans… What do you make of this news? Do you want Jakupovic to go? Let us know in the comments below.
