Manager Marco Silva has made a decision about his Hull City future

Craig Burley explains why Marco Silva is destined for bigger and better things while Hull City return to the Championship.

Marco Silva remained tight-lipped about his future at Hull but admitted he has already decided whether he will stay with the relegated Premier League side.

The Tigers boss produced an impressive upturn in results at the KCOM Stadium following his January arrival, although he was ultimately unable to prevent the club's immediate return to the Championship.

He is out of contract at the end of the season and has been linked with a move away from Hull, with Watford -- due to part company with manager Walter Mazzarri -- reportedly interested.

Silva, whose side conclude the season at home to Tottenham on Sunday, now plans to meet City chairman Assem Allam next week before an announcement is made.

"I have in my mind [a decision] but the first person who will listen to this situation is the chairman and our board,'' Silva said.

"We need to talk about many, many things -- it's not only if I want [to stay] or not.

"We need to look for the future of the club. We need to look as well what is my goal for my career. We started to talk during this week and we'll meet again next week.

Marco Silva is out of contract at the end of the season.

"It's important we keep some things inside the club, and not say them outside. Of course when we decide we'll explain more about the situation.''

Silva was relatively unknown in England when he replaced Mike Phelan at the turn of the year.

The former Olympiacos manager quickly boosted his reputation by guiding the Tigers to six league wins from his opening 14 matches to give them a chance of surviving.

A costly loss at home to Sunderland followed by last weekend's 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace ultimately ended their hopes of staying up, prompting speculation the 39-year-old Portuguese may move on to further his career.

There appear to be plenty of suitors, including the Hornets, but Silva insists he has not been in contact with any other team.

"It's impossible for me to talk about the other clubs,'' he said. "First, because Hull City deserve all my respect.

"We have one more game to play and this club, Watford in this case, have one more game to play. Up until now, nothing has happened.

"This is the truth and it is impossible to talk about the clubs, A, B, C or D. The most important thing is I'm here to work at Hull City, not to talk about other clubs.''

Silva remains focused on trying to give Hull fans something to cheer about as he attempts to finish the campaign on a high, although second-placed Spurs will provide a stern test.

Mauricio Pochettino's in-form side hit six at Leicester on Thursday to record their 11th win in 12 league games and Silva was full of admiration for the London club's style of play.

"Very good football they show for everybody and of course it's one team with very, very good players,'' he added.
