HARRY’S IN HULL OF A HOLE

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

HARRY MAGUIRE is ready to head out on loan af­ter grow­ing frus­trated at his bit-part role at Hull.

The 21-year-old de­fender has alerted Cham­pi­onship clubs af­ter ad­mit­ting he’s found it tough be­ing un­able to hold down a reg­u­lar place at the KC Sta­dium.

Maguire (right) im­pressed in the 2-0 FA Cup de­feat at Ar­se­nal – but it was only his sec­ond start of the sea­son af­ter his £2.5mil­lion sum­mer move from Sh­effield United.

The Eng­land Under-21 cen­tre-back had to wait un­til De­cem­ber 20 to make his Tigers Pre­mier League de­but.

And he ad­mits it has been dif­fi­cult look­ing in from the out­side af­ter be­ing a near ever-present for the Blades over three sea­sons.

He is now will­ing to go out on loan and said: “If I’m not play­ing, I might have to look else­where.

“It’s frus­trat­ing, es­pe­cially af­ter three sea­sons where I had played ev­ery game, but in the first half of this sea­son I only got a few min­utes.

“I knew when I was sign­ing for a Pre­mier League club I’d have to be pa­tient, so I’m try­ing to stay that way.”

Hull boss Steve Bruce may tell Maguire he has to stay put for now, be­cause of de­fender Liam Rose­nior’s long-term ham­string in­jury.

Maguire added: “The gaffer’s been great with me and if I can’t learn from him, I can’t learn from any­one.

“I’m still only 21, so there’s a lot of time ahead, but ev­ery foot­baller wants to play.

“If I can keep in the squad, then it’s happy days.”
