Hull enter McShane negotiations

Richard Jolly

Hull City are keen to reward Paul McShane with a new contract after he scored one of the goals that won them promotion to the Premier League.

The Republic of Ireland international struck on the final day of the season, when Steve Bruce's team drew 2-2 with Cardiff to go up, and is one of three players the Tigers hope to keep.

Full-back Liam Rosenior and reserve goalkeeper Mark Oxley have also been offered new deals while Hull have activated a clause to extend centre-back Abdoulaye Faye's contract for a further season.

The 35-year-old Senegalese joined Hull last year after helping West Ham secure promotion to the top flight.

Former Manchester United and Sunderland defender McShane is a survivor of Hull's first spell in in the Premier League while Rosenior, who arrived on a free transfer in 2010, has made 106 appearances for Hull.

However, veteran left-back Andy Dawson, who has played in all four divisions for Hull, is being released after 10 seasons and over 300 games for the club.

Experienced midfielder Paul McKenna and Nigeria international Seyi Olofinjana are also among 12 players who Bruce is letting go.
