Cairney agrees Tigers deal - Report
Cairney's future at the KC Stadium had been the subject of conjecture after former Tigers boss Phil Brown revealed he had been ordered not to talk to Cairney about a new contract by the player's lawyer. However, it appears the matter has been resolved and Sky Sports understands the 19-year-old is set to pledge his future to Hull. The highly-rated midfielder has broken into the Hull first-team this season and scored his first goal in the defeat to Everton earlier this month. A number of Premier League clubs were thought to be monitoring Cairney's situation, but Hull have now agreed a new three-year deal with the former Leeds trainee. Cairney is expected to finalise his new deal in the next few days and the news will come as a massive boost to the club as they battle to avoid relegation.
