Duke signs new Hull deal

The new deal will keep the 31-year-old at the club until the summer of 2011.

Duke told the club’s official website: “I’m delighted and was more than happy to sign the new contract.

“It is something that has been in the pipeline since the Newcastle FA Cup games and things progressed after the West Ham game.

“I never thought about leaving. I am quite prepared to work hard and test myself in The Premier League.

“People call The Premier League the best in the world and this is where I want to be. I’ve worked hard over the years and I’m just glad to have been given the chance. The aim now is to stay in the team.”
