Republic of Ireland midfielder David Meyler has announced that he is leaving Hull City after his contract expired at the end of this season. The Cork man has spent 5 and a half years at the club and despite Nigel Adkins saying he wanted Meyler to stay, Meyler has opted to go elsewhere and look for a new club for the new season which begins in August.
Meyler confirmed the news on his Twitter account and he went on to thank the club and its supporters. Meyler in his statement released on Twitter said, “I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the fans at @HullCity for the past 5 and a half years,” Meyler wrote. “It’s been an incredible journey. I’m truly honoured to be part of the most successful period in the club’s history. We’ve made memories together I’ll never forget. #hcafc’’
He went on thank the five managers he played under at the club and said “I’d to thank all 5 managers I’ve played under Steve Bruce, Mick Phelan, Marco Silva, Leonid Slutsky & Nigel Adkins. I’ve been very fortunate to play with some great players in my time at Hull. Also I can’t forget all the people who work behind the scenes thank you for everything!”
Meyler has yet to say what club he looks at going to, but I am pretty sure the offers will come in from numerous championship sides as he brings experience as well as a willingness to win. Meyler won two promotion with the Tigers, while he also picked up a runners up medal in the FA Cup with them.
