The 37-year-old’s contract is up at the end of the season, but Hill insists he has plenty more to give.
“I definitely still think I have a bit left to offer as a player,” he said.
“I’m feeling as good as I ever have, so I can definitely go on for another year.
“I’m confident I can do a job at this level, I think I have more than proved that over the years.”
