Hull City centre-back Harry Maguire is set to reject a new contract at the club and is expected to move on in the summer, according to The Sun.

The 23-year-old has been impressing in the middle of the Tigers’ defence, with his performance against Chelsea attracting lots of praise.

The Englishman moved from Sheffield United to Hull in 2014 for £2.5 million on a three-year contract and made 22 appearances in the 2015/16 Championship as Steve Bruce’s side got promoted straight back up to the Premier League.

Maguire has 18 months left on his current deal but Southampton and Everton are reportedly interested in the player and Leicester City are also said to be keeping an eye on the situation, with the club allegedly looking for around £7m for him.

Ronald Koeman’s men are revitalising their squad and are reportedly ready to let Phil Jagielka leave Goodison Park this month.

Everton are being linked with the acquisition of a new defender and Maguire could potentially fit the bill.

The centre-back has made 15 appearances for Marco Silva’s men in the league this season but has not managed to stop his team from being in the drop zone.

With Hull facing a huge task to avoid relegation, it seems Maguire will not be able to turn down a move in the summer and it looks like he won’t be short of offers from top-flight clubs in the next transfer window.
