Hull offer extensions to Jakupovic, Huddlestone, Elmohamady

Hull City have exercised the option to offer Eldin Jakuovic a one-year contract extension.

The 31-year-old goalkeeper stepped in with aplomb to replace the injured Allan McGregor late in the season as the Tigers won promotion to the Premier League and will now remain at the KC Stadium for at least the 2016/17 campaign.

Additionally, midfielder Tom Huddlestone and the versatile Ahmed Elmohamady have been offered one-year deals as their current contracts are due to expire.

"Both Ahmed and Tom contributed hugely towards our success in the end-of-season Play-Offs and we are keen for both players to remain with us on our return to the Premier League," vice-chairman Ehab Allam said in a statement.

"We're also pleased that Eldin Jakupovic will be continuing his career here. The development he has made during his time with this Club has been clear to see this season, including a quite exceptional performance and clean sheet against Arsenal in the FA Cup, and culminating in his performances in the Play-Offs."
