HARRY’S IN HULL OF A HOLE
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.”
