Jacob Greaves is determined to repay the faith shown in him after signing a new long-term contract with Hull City.
The 20-year-old put pen to paper on a new three-year deal last Thursday, which includes a Club option of a further year.
The Cottingham-born defender has made six senior appearances for the Tigers since returning from a productive loan spell at League Two side Cheltenham last season.
The promising youngster shone once again in Hull City’s 2-0 victory over Burton Albion on Saturday - his fourth clean sheet in his last five outings.
And the Tigers’ youth product is delighted to have committed his future to his boyhood Club.
“I was delighted to finally get it done,” said Greaves.
“It’s a really proud achievement for me to sign a new long-term contract at the club I’ve been at since I was eight.
“Hopefully now I can get my head down and kick on, look at making improvements which will help me have a long and successful career.
“For the gaffer and Ehab to have the belief in me and to give me a new contract was nice of them and hopefully I can repay them further down the line.
“It’s my hometown club, I’m living at home – I spent a year away last season – so to be back at home is really nice.
“There are a lot of good people at the club so it was a no-brainer.”
