Hull City goalkeeper Nathan Baxter has once again suggested that he is committed to playing for the Tigers in the long term, during a recent interview that he gave to the club’s official website.
The Chelsea loanee has had to be patient in order to get his chance at the MKM Stadium but has now firmly established himself as the club’s number one choice between the sticks.
Baxter previously hinted that he would be keen on a permanent move to the club, with the shot stopper’s comments only sure to accelerate speculation over his future as the January transfer window approaches.
Now the keeper has once again spoken about his commitment to the East Riding of Yorkshire outfit, as he stated the following recently:
“I said the day I signed here that I don’t see myself as a Chelsea player, I see myself as a Hull City player and hopefully the fans can see that I am giving everything on the pitch.
“I just want to be a positive influence around the group. It is nice to be playing games and I’m desperate to keep the unbeaten streak going and keep helping the side.”

Up to this point Baxter has made seven appearances for the Tigers across all competitions and will now be looking to help his side move up the Sky Bet Championship standings.
The keeper currently has two years left to run on his contract with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Baxter is clearly very keen to stay put at Hull and in the long term it could be for the best if he moves away from Chelsea on a permanent basis.
The Blues have a habit of loaning out young players consistently without offering them a clear route to the first team and it could be the case that this is a temporary move too far for the 23-year-old.
He does however still have a few years left to run on his contract with Chelsea, so signing him may not be as easy as first thought for Hull.
However with the new owners being seemingly set to come in at the MKM Stadium, the Tigers could have some new possibilities on the horizon when it comes to transfers.
