Hull’s retained listed has been revealed with Alex Bruce’s spell at the KCOM Stadium coming to an end. But, somewhat surprisingly, Shaun Maloney has been offered a new deal.

Ending the season, and indeed his contract, at Wigan on loan doesn’t make the release of Bruce that surprising. The defender, who helped Hull to the Premier League in 2012-13 and 2015-16, made 104 appearances for the club.

Academy players Luke Lofts, Bradley Maslen-Jones and Johan Ter Horst an academy scholar Stephen Akbas have also been released.

The players that had come to Hull on loan, most, if not all signed by Marco Silva – reportedly about to leave himself – have also left the KCOM and returned to their parent clubs. It’s unlikely any of them will return.

Confirming the exits the Official Website thanked all for their contributions: ‘We wish all of the above players well for their future careers and thank them for their efforts in a black and amber shirt.’

However, despite strong links with a move to Aberdeen with Scottish Premier League interest also reportedly shown by Hibernian, Maloney could yet have a future at the KCOM Stadium? Well, he’s been offered a new deal at least.

City have also offered new deals to Jonathan Edwards and Harvey Rodgers, who had loans with Accrington Stanley last season.
