The Egyptian addressed the media at the KC Stadium on Thursday and said he would either sell the club or stay in place if the appeal against the decision to block the change of name to Hull Tigers was reversed at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

He said he remained committed to the club until either the name was changed or a sale was completed, whichever came first. He did not reveal what price he was looking for to sell.

He revealed that he planned to move the Tigers to the top five of the Premiership and make European football a regular thing.

Allam said he bought the club "for the community" to do his best and although there is potential interest he wants to make sure it is sold to the right person.

Before the name change was rejected Allam threatened to sell the club and now says he will "give it away" if an appeal over the name change is rejected.

The 28-year-old who is originally from Dronfield, has been rewarded for his consistency for club and country by being formally named Rooney's deputy and received the armband when the Manchester United forward was substituted in England's recent wins over Norway and Switzerland.

It's an ambition, but more of a dream, to captain your country. It's still an amazing feeling every time you put on an England shirt to go out to play. In the next few years, whether Wayne's rested or injured, there might be an opportunity to captain the team. To know that is unbelievable. To have (the armband) for the short period of time in both games felt really good. It's something I'm really proud of and I'll relish.
