Cairney agrees Tigers deal - Report

BY foxsports • March 25, 2010

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.
