Marco Silva has refused to commit his future to Hull
Silva is ready to announce on his departure on Wednesday despite giving City chiefs one last chance to persuade him to stay.
He is a free agent this summer after failing to keep Hull in the Premier League, and Watford are searching for their latest head coach with current boss Walter Mazzarri set to leave after tomorrow’s final game against Manchester City.
Asked if Hull can match his ambitions in the Championship, Silva said: “That’s not an easy question. It was a big challenge for us to keep the club up. Now I need to see what is the best solution for us as well.

“The chairman has shown an interest in keeping our staff, but we will talk again next week.
“I’ve not had any other offers at this point, but speculation is normal. It’s impossible for me to talk about other clubs because Hull City deserve all my respect.

“We have one more game to play and Watford have one more game to play as well. Until now nothing has happened.
“It’s not easy to talk about if I want stay or not. I need to speak to the chairman.”
