‘It would make sense’ – Soon-to-be free agent on Hull City’s summer radar: Opinion



Hull City are one of a number of clubs tracking Derby County’s Kelle Roos.

Sky Sports is reporting that the Tigers are in for the out-of-contract star, and are being rivalled for his services by Bristol City and Stoke.

The 26-year-old only made his debut for the Rams in January, filling in for Scott Carson who was out injured.

Roos is currently in dialogue over a new deal at Pride Park, but with several options seemingly on the table, he has a decision to make.

The Rams’ keeper has played 13 times this season and was impressive during his stint between the sticks.

Money is tight at the KCOM stadium, so free transfers could be the order of the day for Nigel Adkins’ men.

And there could well be fewer better low-risk buys than Derby’s number two as Adkins looks to see off competition for his signature in the summer.

Would he be a good signing for the Tigers, though?

We asked our team of FLW writers their thoughts…

Jay Taylor

“Hull have several players out of contract in the summer, and that includes two goalkeepers.

“If David Marshall doesn’t sign a new deal, then there is space in the side for a new addition.

“Roos would surely be the club’s number one if signed.

“That could be what sways it in Adkins’ favour should they back up their interest with a solid offer.”

George Brooks

“Though he’s only made a few appearances for Derby this season, Roos has done well for the Rams and could be a good back-up goalkeeper to David Marshall at Hull City.

“He’s out of contract in the summer so it would be even better for the Tigers if they could get him on a free transfer.”

Louie Chandler


“At 34, David Marshall does not have long left in the game so bringing in a younger model like Roos, it would make sense.

“George Long is yet to impress either so some healthy competition would be good.”
