London - Hull City owner Assem Allam is set to address questions over his future with the Premier League club at a news conference.
Reports this week have suggested a shake-up at the top of the Yorkshire side, ranging from an outright sale to indications that the 75-year-old Egyptian is preparing to hand over the chairmanship to his son Ehab, who has been the club's acting chief executive since December.
A short statement issued Tuesday said Allam would speak to the media at 15:00 (SA Time) on Wednesday "referencing the future of Hull City Tigers".
The inclusion of the word 'Tigers' in the statement suggested Allam was in typically forthright mood.
Allam prevented the club from financial collapse when he bought it in 2010 but angered many fans following the club's promotion to the Premier League last season by announcing plans to change its official name from Hull City AFC to Hull Tigers.
The owner argued the name change was necessary to attract overseas investment but for many supporters it was needless break with tradition and the proposal was rejected by the Football Association in April.
Allam had once said he would "walk away within 24 hours" if his name-change plan was rejected.
However, he stayed and was rewarded by seeing manager Steve Bruce guide Hull to their first FA Cup final, where they were beaten by Arsenal, and the highest league finish in their history of 16th place in the English top flight.
Nevertheless, some fans persisted with their anti-Allam chats at matches, usually timed at 19 minutes and four seconds to reflect the club's foundation as Hull City AFC in 1904.
But Allam continued to back Bruce in the transfer market, with Jake Livermore, Robert Snodgrass and Abel Hernandez all breaking the club's previous transfer record, with the latter becoming Hull's first 10 million player.
