Hull keeper agrees new deal

Hull City goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic has agreed a new deal to stay at the KC Stadium, Sky Sports understands.

Jakupovic's existing deal expires at the end of this month and Hull have moved to tie down the 29-year-olf to fresh terms.

Jakupovic, who joined Hull in the summer of 2012, is understood to have agreed a new two-year deal to keep him at the club.

The Bosnian impressed during a loan spell at Leyton Orient last term, helping them reach the League One play-off final and he also caught the eye when he started against Manchester United at the back end of last season.

The news is a boost for Tigers boss Steve Bruce who will be hoping Jakupovic will provide cover and competition to No.1 keeper Allan McGregor next season.
