The 28-year-old defender, who made 36 appearances during the 2012/13 promotion-winning season, will now remain at the KC Stadium until 2015.
With his immediate future now sorted, Rosenior can look forward to a return to the Barclays Premier League, a division in which he has almost 100 appearances to his name from spells with Fulham and Reading.
It’s a division Rosenior has always aimed to break back into and he now has that opportunity with the Tigers.
“I’ve been waiting for four or five years to get back to the Premier League and prove that I can play at that level,” said Rosenior.
“If I can get the chance, I want to prove to everyone and also to myself that I’m good enough to play well in this league and help the club to get results.
“Because we’ve come up from the Championship, we will be viewed as underdogs but I think we can use that to our advantage.
“Having the opportunity to play in the Premier League again is one that I want to take and I’m very much looking forward to it.”
The Tigers’ squad continues to evolve and develop in readiness for the 2013/14 season and Rosenior believes that the quality additions being made to the existing group of players make for a positive mix.
“The manager is building a good squad,” added the defender.
“We’ve got a lot of good players here, a lot of underrated players and a young squad, one that I think will get better together.
“The players that we’ve signed so far this summer will add to what we’ve already got. I’ve known Curtis Davies for ten years and I played with him for England U21s, he’s a fantastic centre half and he’ll fit in fantastically well here.
“We’ve also brought in Maynor Figueroa who is one of the best left backs in the Premier League and I think it is a real coup for us to sign him.
“Add all of that to what we’ve already got and it’s looking good for the new season. I’m delighted to be here and hopefully we can keep this club progressing and moving forward.”
