The long-serving goalkeeper could be on his way out of Newcastle United this summer.

Hull City manager Liam Rosenior has further reiterated his desire to sign Karl Darlow on a permanent basis this summer.

Rosenior is keen to bring Darlow back to Humberside next term and plans to hold talks with the player and Newcastle this summer summer.

“He’s been magnificent since he’s come in,” said Rosenior, who spoke after Hull’s 1-0 win versus Watford last week. “I think he’s massively enjoying working here, I think he’s enjoying the club, he’s settled in with the players really really well.

“What I really like about Karl was as soon as he signed he had his young family come and join him and settle down in the area, and I think that’s helped him. Hopefully we’ll have discussions in the summer about his long-term future.”

Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe is unlikely to stand in Darlow’s way, however may have to source a replacement before sanctioning his departure. Both Loris Karius and Mark Gillespie are out-of-contract in June, while No.2 Martin Dubravka is tipped to leave.

Darlow has made 100 appearances for Newcastle since arriving from Nottingham Forest in 2014.
