Newcastle United have some big decisions to make this summer regarding some of their first-team players

Hull City boss Liam Rosenior has reiterated his desire to snap up Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow on a permanent basis this summer. The experienced stopper has been on loan with the Championship side for the second-half of the campaign.

He was given the green light to leave St. James’ Park on a temporary deal back in January and has since made the number one spot his own at the MKM Stadium, making 12 appearances in all competitions. However, it remains to be seen at this stage whether he will be making the move back to East Yorkshire for next term.

Rosenior has made it clear that he wants to land the 32-year-old and has provided this update to BBC Radio Humberside: “Karl Darlow is someone who we really, really want to work hard to get into the building for the start of next season and he seems really happy here.

“Everything seems really, really positive. We just need to make sure we can conclude the deals we want to.”

Whether a deal has been put on the table to Newcastle yet: “No, now is not the time. Newcastle are still at an important stage of their season. We’ll have that discussion at the right time.”

Darlow, who is from Northampton, joined the Toon Army back in 2014 and has since played 100 games for the North East club. However, he has fallen down the pecking order under Eddie Howe now and most signs point towards an exit at the end of this season.

Prior to his switch to Newcastle, he spent eight years at Nottingham Forest and had played 111 times for the City Ground outfit. Hull want him back and their manager has said they will ‘work hard’ to get his signature.
