CYRUS CHRISTIE says he is loving life at Hull following his struggles with Fulham.

The defender (above) has been a key figure under Liam Rosenior and is bidding to help the Tigers challenge for promotion after recovering from a serious knee injury.

And Christie – who is out of contract next summer – hopes he can extend his stay at the MKM Stadium.

“It’s been great for me here so far and I want to continue this journey,” he said.

“I feel like I’m finally getting back there and feeling great. It’s been a mental and physical test.

“I’ve found a home in Hull. I’m coming into the last year of my contract so we’ll see if it’s going to be my home for longer.

“I can only influence what I can do on the pitch, but I’ve come here and it’s been very similar to how I felt at Swansea with everyone, it’s been amazing.”

Christie came off the bench at half-time to help Hull come from two goals down to draw with his former club Swansea.

Jamie Paterson and Jerry Yates both struck in the first-half before substitute Christie teed up Jaden Philogene and Tyler Morton after the break.

Christie added: “I feel like on another day we could’ve gone on to win, we had that many chances.”

Paterson’s early strike was his first goal in the league since March 2022.

And the playmaker admits he is relieved to finally end his Championsh­ip drought.

He said: “Not scoring has been playing on my mind.

“I’ve had a few halfchance­s here and there, but I’ve been desperate for a league goal this season.

“It’s probably the longest I’ve gone without scoring.

“Hopefully that’s the start now.”
