Hull midfielder David Meyler says he is totally convinced the Tigers will hang on to their Premier League status.

Steve Bruce's side are in 15th place, three points off the relegation zone, but have a tough run-in with five of their last eight matches against clubs in the top seven of the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of the weekend meeting with Swansea, Meyler said: "We are not going down. We just have to get into the mentality that it is not good enough to accept the 3-2 defeat to Chelsea, even if they are likely Premier League champions.

"We had some great chances and we need to win these games when you get into those positions."

He added: "We're down to the last eight games now and this is where we have to earn our money.

"This is the period when everything will be decided so we've got eight games to make sure we finish as well as we can and that is what we aim to do.

"We finished 17th last season and at the moment, we're 15th this season so we're a little bit ahead."

Hull close to signing Spurs winger on loan - reports

Hull boss Steve Bruce says the club are close to agreeing a loan deal for a Premier League player - reported to be Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon.

Bruce has made no secret of the fact he wants to recruit some fresh faces to counter the threat of relegation with particular emphasis on bolstering a forward line hampered by injury and inconsistency.

Bruce didn't name Lennon but admits Saturday's game at the KC Stadium may come too early for any potential new signing.

"It's always nice top bring one or two in if you possibly can to give everyone a lift in the squad and that's what we've been working on really hard in the last couple of days," said Bruce. "Let's hope we can get them over the line."

"I wouldn't have thought it would be done by Saturday if I'm honest. We are working in particular on a loan deal but I wouldn't think it's going to get done before 12 o'clock. I would like to say it would be but I really can't see it."

Lennon has struggled for game time under new Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Humberside Police said a 17-year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent.

Writing on Facebook, the victim said: "One of my eyes is now physically impaired and I am blind in (it), I will most likely never receive my vision in my right eye again.

"The outer layer of my eyes are permanently damaged and my hair has turned green from the bleach and has fallen out at the front."

The female suspect was released on police bail pending further enquiries.
