Ex-Liverpool midfielder Kevin Stewart has spoken out regarding his frustrating at a lack of game time at Anfield prior to his summer move to Championship Hull City.
Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, the 23-year-old Stewart expressed a desire to "progress to the next level" whilst in the north-east, and vowed to prove that the recently-relegated Tigers were right to part with a reported £4m in order to sign him.
The defensive midfielder was signed by the Reds from Tottenham Hotspur in 2014, and subsequently spent time on-loan at a plethora of other clubs including Cheltenham, Burton and Swindon before signing a three-year deal with the Tigers last week.
"I think this is the safer and better option for my career.
"My agent called up when I was on tour with Liverpool and said that Hull had put in a bid. I was really excited for the opportunity as soon as I heard about it.
"I knew I needed to get out and play games, especially at this stage. I need to start my career and can do that here."
