Jake Connor’s agent insists he has no agenda

Jake Connor’s agent, Iestyn Harris, has insisted that the Hull utility back has no agenda amid rumours regarding his future, report Hull Live.

The 24-year-old hit a poor run of form during the back end of the season and was highlighted when he was sin binned during FC’s heavy 44-12 defeat to Castleford for mouthing off to the referee, prompting fans and pundits alike to question his attitude.

There have also been rumours circulating on social media that Connor is unhappy at the KCOM Stadium and has been linked with a move to Leeds Rhinos in 2020.

Black and Whites owner Adam Pearson has insisted the rumours are inaccurate but has admitted that Connor’s performances have dipped as a result of the gossip.

Harris, however, is adamant that his client’s sole focus is on Hull FC and representing Great Britain this Autumn, should he be selected.

“I think what you know about Jake, and I know him really well, he’s a really honest person,” Harris told the BBC.

“If there has been a few times this year where his form’s not where it could have been, he’ll be the first to admit that.

“He works exceptionally hard and he’s under contract at Hull. There’s no agenda from Jake whatsoever he just wants to playing the best he can possibly play and represent his country when he gets the opportunity.”
