Sunderland midfielder David Meyler is happy with his chance on-loan at Hull City.

The midfielder insists he hasn't considered the prospect of making the move permanent, while Sunderland have reserved the right to recall him should they suffer injuries over the busy festive period.

"I'll just be there until the start of January and I'll take that period first and then go back to Sunderland, push back into the fold there and try to play as many games as I can," Meyler said.

"The conversation I had with Martin O'Neill was for me to go and get games, get maybe eight or nine 90 minutes and then come back raring to go and push back into the Sunderland team."
