Hull defender Brian Lenihan has signed a new one-year deal with the club.

The Tigers have the option of a further year on the 22-year-old right-back, who has been dogged by injury since joining from Cork City in 2014.

"Irish right-back Brian Lenihan has signed a new one-year deal with the Tigers," the club confirmed on their official website.

Lenihan signed a three-year deal when he arrived at Hull, but has been restricted to one first-team appearance due to a series of recurring injuries and had knee surgery last summer.

He spent time on loan at Blackpool during the 2014/15 season, has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-19 and Under-21 level and was called into the senior squad during their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
