Steve Harper is delighted with his move to Hull City.

The former Newcastle United goalkeeper has shone when called upon this season.

He told the Hull Daily Mail: "I think the change in clubs has done me good, it's almost given me a new lease of life. A new club, a new dressing room, new people.

"It was just what I needed at this stage of my career because I'm really enjoying it. It's a fantastic bunch of lads, a terrific spirit and camaraderie.

"Everyone gives the banter but takes it too. I get my fair share telling me I'm the granddad of the group, but I can give it back as well."
