Hull hand Lenihan new one-year deal

Irish defender Brian Lenihan has put pen to paper on a fresh one-year contract with Hull City, the club have confirmed.

Lenihan’s new deal with the relegation-threatened club, which includes the option of a further year, was announced on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old full-back joined the Tigers in 2014 from Cork City, but has found his first-team opportunities limited at the KCOM Stadium, making just one senior appearance for the club back in 2016.

A combination of injuries and first-team competition has affected his development, but he will be hoping to hit the ground running in the 2017-18 campaign.

Shortly after his arrival at Hull, Lenihan was sent out on loan to Blackpool, where he made just two Championship appearances.

Capped at Under-19 and Under-21 level for the Republic of Ireland, he has been a regular for Hull’s Under-23 team in the past few seasons.
