HULL defender Liam Rosenior has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract at the KC Stadium.
The 26-year-old, who arrived from Reading in late October on a short-term contract that was due to expire at the end of next week, believes Hull will continue to rise up the npower Championship table.
Rosenior said: "I'm delighted. It's something that we kind of half agreed when I first came here, but it relied on the takeover being completed for me to stay.
"I've really enjoyed my time here so far and, to be honest, I don't think there is anywhere I would rather be at the moment, especially in this league."
Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest are refusing to comment on reports they have signed USA striker Robbie Findley.
The 25-year-old, who played against England at this summer's World Cup, is a free agent after leaving Real Salt Lake and had been on trial at Wolves.
However, the Premier League club's manager Mick McCarthy insists Findley has opted to join Forest.
"We had him here, he came and trained with us but he's gone to Nottingham Forest," McCarthy said.
"I think he's been offered a contract, whereas we wanted to have a look at him."
