Myhill keen to stay with Tigers

BY foxsports • July 15, 2010

Myhill was dropped for the last five games of last season as Hull went down but the goalkeeper could stay in the Premier League with Spurs or the newly-promoted Baggies. Myhill is determined to stay at the KC Stadium, though, and repay the Tigers for launching his career. "I owe this club a lot, I'd be nothing without this club," the 27-year-old told the Hull Daily Mail. "I came here as a 20-year-old who hadn't kicked a ball worth anything in his career. "I've had some great times here. Last year was a disappointing season but I'm still glad to be here. "I'm just concentrating on getting my head down in pre-season and winning a place in the side when the first game comes around." Matt Duke was preferred by Iain Dowie for the last few games of last season but Myhill is ready to establish himself as first-choice under new boss Nigel Pearson. "I'm happy to be back and I want to get in the team like everyone else here," he said. "I'd hope to be our number one keeper, that's what I'm here for. That's the same for every player in the squad. No one is here because they want to be a sub or don't want to be in the squad. "I want to play but it's the manager's decision when it comes down to it. All I can do is work hard in pre-season to try and hit him in the eye."
