Republic of Ireland international David Meyler has said his goodbyes at Hull City after the midfielder's contract expired at the end of the season.

Meyler has spent five-and-a-half years at the club but despite manager Nigel Adkins admitting that he wants the Corkman to stay, the player is out of contract and set to move to a new club.

The 28-year-old took to Twitter to confirm his exit from the club and to thank the managers and players he worked with during his time with Hull.

"I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the fans at @HullCity for the past 5 and a half years," Meyler wrote. "It’s been an incredible journey. I’m truly honoured to be part of the most successful period in the clubs history. We’ve made memories together I’ll never forget. #hcafc

"I’d to thank all 5 managers I’ve played under Steve Bruce, Mick Phelan, Marco Silva, Leonid Slutsky & Nigel Adkins. I’ve been very fortunate to play with some great players in my time at Hull. Also I can’t forget all the people who work behind the scenes thank you for everything!"

Meyler has yet to confirm his next destination but the midfielder is unlikely to be short on offers from Championship clubs looking for his experience next season.

The Corkman enjoyed two promotions with Hull and also picked up an FA Cup runners up medal during his time at the club.
