“If he’s not happy here, he’s never going to be happy anywhere.”

Lee Radford has labelled the rumours linking Jake Connor with Leeds Rhinos as comical.

Reports in Monday’s League Weekly suggested the England international was unsettled and could be open to a move away from the KCOM Stadium.

However, Radford has rubbished all talk of Connor’s exit and says he wants the 25-year-old to reach his full potential playing for the Black and Whites.

“The update is that it’s come from social media. It’s not come from Leeds, it’s not come from us, it’s not come from Jake, it’s not come from his agent,” Radford told Hull Live’s William Jackson.

“If that’s how you want to spend your time. I understand from a reporter’s point of view because they have to make headlines and sell papers and it’s a good headline.

“He’s on a three-year deal, he’s 25 coming up and I want him to be playing better, definitely. But I didn’t sign him and put the time I have in with him not to see him fulfil his potential here.

“If he’s not happy here, he’s never going to be happy anywhere.”
