Steve Bruce has tried to pacify the disgruntled supporters
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has tried to pacify the disgruntled supporters of the club by stating that new signings will come to the KC stadium in the next few weeks.
Following their relegation to the Championship, a mass exodus of players was expected at the club. The club has already received £ 15 million in the last few days following the sale of players like James Chester and Robbie Brady. It is expected that the club will reinvest a significant portion of this sum in improving the squad. Hull City will struggle to attract Premier League players to the club, but they can hope to bring in a few top-level Championship names.
After all, it is promotion to the Premier league that counts at the moment. Since the parachute payments will not be lasting for more than a couple of years, a return to the top division as soon as possible is of paramount importance. Bruce has confirmed that the club are in discussions with two players, who could potentially be signing with Hull City sooner rather than later. However, he does not want to give away any details in order to prevent other clubs from snatching their prize. City’s season starts with a game against Huddersfield Town on August 8.
“There’s no doubt it’s been a difficult couple of weeks.Everybody understands that and hopefully in the next few weeks we can start to do our business.We have had to wait and sit around for people to come back from work. June was a non-entity for everybody and it’s starting to pick up.I can assure supporters we are doing our best to make sure when the season starts we’ll have a squad capable of getting to where we want to be,” said Bruce ahead of the new season.
