Rising Hull City Star Makes Decision On Future

It’s set to be quite the summer of change at Hull City with a decision on the hiring of a new manager yet to be made. As a result, when a new name does arrive, there could be quite the overhaul in the squad.

Players will be looking to make an impact when the new man does come in the building. Although it is yet to be confirmed, it looks likely that the new manager in the dugout could be former Hamburger SV boss Tim Walter.

Despite not having any experience within his EFL, his forward-thinking approach is expected to be a real hit with Tigers fans. Promotion will once again be the overarching goal for the club and Walter may just be the man to lead them forward.

With the club yet to announce their retained list, there are some queries about some of the players’ future. That is no different for goalkeeper Thimothee Lo-Tutala.

The ‘keeper would spend the second half of the season on loan with League Two outfit Doncaster Rovers and excelled during his stay at the fellow Yorkshire club. In total, he’d make 20 appearances, keeping nine clean sheets and playing a pivotal part in Rovers’ 13 match unbeaten run which would help book them a surprise play-off space.

Despite winning the first leg of their tie with Crewe Alexandra 2-0, they’d be pegged back in the second leg where their opposition would win by the same scoreline. Unfortunately for the ‘keeper and Doncaster, they’d lose on penalties but there’s plenty of hope for the future for both player and club alike.

After his performances for the club, many Rovers fans have been wanting the 21-year-old to re-sign for next season but that now looks unlikely with the Doncaster Free Press revealing that Lo-Tutala wants to make an impression upon his return to Hull.

After a standout loan spell, he could well push for the number one spot this summer and will be hoping that he is in the new manager’s plans for next season. If the club decide to loan him out once again it’s likely that a move will come further up the pyramid rather than being pitched back into League Two.

He’s certainly one to watch for the future and could indeed be Hull’s next great number one.

There were high expectations of the Frenchman when he joined Doncaster on loan on deadline day but no one would’ve expected the move to work out as well as it did.

The ‘keeper would become a real fan favourite during his time at the Eco-Power Stadium and will be hoping that his spell in League Two can help him gain a spot in Hull’s first team next term.

Plans for Lo-Tutala’s future will no doubt be revealed once a new manager is announced, which will likely be in the coming days. One thing is known already though, that being that Hull have a bit of a gem on their hands.
