Hull City club captain Robert Koren must wait till the end of the season for any decision on a new contract, The Hull Daily Mail has reported.

Koren, who has made 20 appearances for the Tigers this season, will see his contract expire this summer with no concrete decision on whether he is to be offered a new one.

The midfielder was a key member of the squad that guided them to promotion from the Championship last season and was the leading goalscorer with nine goals.

However he has not made a Premier League start since the 1-0 defeat to Norwich back in January, and has also been overlooked in the last two rounds of the FA Cup.

The Slovenian has reportedly spoken of his desire to remain in England with a move to a Championship club the more likely outcome.

Speaking on Koren’s contract situation, manager Steve Bruce could not give any light on whether he was to offer a new contract.

He said: “It's a similar situation as Matty (Fryatt). They're just going to have to be patient and I think they understand that.

"We'll make a decision and see what we've got to do. He's been a really good player for this club over the years and he's been terrific in my time here.

"He's still in wonderful nick for his age. It was always going to be difficult for him when we got in the Premier League. If we're going to be successful, you need a squad of players” he added.

The 33-year old move to the KC Stadium back in 2010 on a free transfer from West Brom and has gone on to make 149 appearances during his time there.
