Eldin Jakupovic is delighted with his new two-year deal at Hull City.
Patience will be necessary in the new campaign but Jakupovic told the Hull Daily Mail: "I spoke with the manager before the cup final and he told me he would like me to stay. I am thankful for the opportunity and I will continue to give my best.
"It's a case of waiting for my chance and when it comes I must try to take it."
