Relegated side Hull City are said to be interested in Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas, who spent the season on loan with Fulham.

Hull City are one of a number of clubs interested in signing the young Chelsea defender, according to

The 24-year-old’s agent, Viktor Kolář, told that new Tigers boss Leonid Slutsky wants to take the defender to the KCOM stadium.

Speaking to, Kolář said: “I can confirm that Hull are interested in Tomas Kalas, but his future is still being solved. More clubs have Tomas under radar, but now we have to decide which option will be the best.

“But he will certainly remain in England.”

Kalas signed for Chelsea in 2010 from Sigma Olomuc for £5.2m, and he has been through the Chelsea loan system, having been at five clubs during his time there.

It’s yet to be seen whether Kalas will go on another loan spell or be sold permanently.

However, back in April Kalas spoke of his desire to stay with Fulham.

“I can say we’re working on it and we’re in touch with Fulham and Chelsea and we are sorting out my situation for next season,” he told Get West London.

“Getting promoted would help but anyway, everyone knows I would like to stay, not because I wouldn’t like to play anywhere else but because I’m playing every game, that’s all I need.

“Living in the area where I know, so actually right now it’s the perfect scenario for me to stay.

“If I didn’t see myself or didn’t want to play for Chelsea I wouldn’t extend a contract or wouldn’t even sign for Chelsea so obviously I’d love to play for them but we know how difficult it is to play for them.

“I prefer to prove myself and prove to everyone I can play at a good level for a certain amount of games to be able to get higher and go into the Chelsea team.”
