Arsenal keeper Mannone eyes permanent Hull switch May 29, 2012, 2:05 am

Arsenal keeper Vito Mannone has not given up hope of a permanent switch to Championship Hull despite the dismissal of boss Nick Barmby.

The 24 year old enjoyed two loan spells at the KC Stadium last season and is keen to leave the Gunners this summer.

"There was obviously more chance of me moving to Hull with Nick as manager but my agent is keeping in touch with the club," Mannone told the Hull Daily Mail.

"I have made it clear how much I have enjoyed my time with Hull. I love the fans and I love the club because they have given me such a great opportunity to play regular football.

"I feel as though I have been playing well this season and it would be a very good club to join but I still have a contract with Arsenal. It will be their decision too."
