Turner may leave Hull if relegated

Hull City defender Michael Turner says he may leave the club if they are relegated in a bid to keep his England hopes alive.

Turner is intent on remaining in the top flight so he can stay under national coach Fabio Capello’s radar but with the Tigers sitting just three points above the drop zone, may need to find a new club to achieve that.

“If I want to be talked about in connection with England in the future, then I have to be playing in The Premier League,” Turner said in the News of the World.

“To be in the England squad you have to be a Premier League player.

“The interest from Fabio Capello has given me a massive confidence boost. It was a surprise and a very pleasant one.

“I hope it will continue because I’m very ambitious to play for my country.”
