Tyler Morton is eager to pick up where he left off in the Championship following his Hull City move.

The Liverpool midfielder spent last season on loan at Rovers, making 46 appearances in all competitions as Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men narrowly missed out on a play-off spot and also had some joy in the cup competitions.

Morton joined the Tigers on Deadline Day and is eager to get minutes under his belt after a foot injury that cut his time at Ewood Park short.

“I’m looking forward to playing at the MKM Stadium in front of all the supporters, I remember how good they were when I played here with Blackburn," he told the club website.

"A full season here is going to be brilliant for me. I’m really excited to play in front of the supporters and showcase what I’m about.

"I’m itching to get going and can’t wait for the season to fully start for myself.”

Morton watched his new team-mates record a 1-0 victory at Leicester last weekend, with Manchester City loanee Liam Delap getting the decisive goal during the first half.

“I was very impressed,” he continued. “It’s clear to see that there’s a family feel throughout the club which is lovely.

"I thought the boys were brilliant from start to finish. I thought we were the better side and played some brilliant football.

“We were very brave going away to Leicester and playing out from the back which is key to our game. It was excellent to watch.”

Hull currently sit sixth in the Championship table, having taken 10 points from their opening five fixtures.

Liam Rosenior's side recorded a narrow 2-1 victory at Ewood Park last month thanks to Aaron Connolly's late double. Rovers played most of the game with 10 men after Harry Pickering was sent off but went in front through Sam Gallagher.
