Jarrod Bowen signs two-year extension with Hull City

Hull teenager Jarrod Bowen has signed a two-year extension to his current deal with the Premier League club.

Versatile forward Bowen, 19, who made his top-flight debut as a late substitute in the recent defeat at Watford, will now stay with the Tigers until at least June 2019.

"It was a really proud moment to be offered this new contract and I now want to develop as a player and achieve great things at this club," Bowen said.

"The staff here have shown great faith in me ever since I joined the academy and I now want to make sure that I repay that.

"It's been a fantastic season so far for me personally. I feel I have progressed as a player in the last three or four months and I now want to maintain that and push on."

Bowen was handed his senior debut for the Tigers in August when he started in the EFL Cup win at Exeter and in recent weeks has been included in Mike Phelan's matchday squad.

Meanwhil, Hull boss Mike Phelan hailed Robert Snodgrass for digging deep and helping to end the team's six-game Premier League losing streak.

The Scotland international shook off injury to come off the bench and make a match-defining contribution by scoring one and creating the other in the Tigers' 2-1 win over Southampton on Sunday -- their first three-pointer since August.

The fact Hull were able to get so much out of him is a surprise as he was named among the substitutes following a speedy recovery from an ankle injury sustained last month which had an initial prognosis of four weeks out.

But Phelan's hand was forced as his side lost Abel Hernandez and Will Keane to injuries in the first 25 minutes and Snodgrass defied expectations and produced the goods.

"Every club has a player or several that are different to everyone else and he is one of them," Phelan said. "At the start of the game he wasn't ready and it was a big, big risk whether he could get through the game.

"We looked at 30 minutes but he managed to find everything that is required of a good player and he showed his quality.

"Mentally Snoddy was one who was prepared to be on the bench, he was prepared to come on and do his bit, albeit for longer than we expected. But he produced and quality players at this level have to produce."
