Hull City head coach hails centre-back who he says could be fit for Leicester trip

Marco Silva is confident that Harry Maguire will be fit to face Leicester City on Saturday, and has backed the defender to be a success for both Hull City and England.

Maguire was an injury concern following the 1-1 draw with Burnley last weekend, but Silva hopes to have the centre-back available as the Tigers bid for a win that could lift them out of the bottom three.

“We will see if Harry can play on Saturday but I am confident that he can,” Silva said.

“I'm sure Harry will have a great career and the next step for him is to be in the national team - he has fantastic skills.”
