Bruce takes Hull job

Steve Bruce has been confirmed as the new manager of Championship side Hull City.

• Bruce offered Hull job
• Hull dismiss Barmby

Bruce takes on his first job since he was sacked as Sunderland manager in November.

The 51-year-old told a press conference today: "I'm looking to bring back the Premier League days if we possibly can, that's the reason I'm sitting here, for the challenge of it.

"There were a few weeks of talks and negotiations and I'm now relishing the challenge of getting the club back to where it wants to be.''

Bruce replaces Nick Barmby, who was dismissed last month in response to comments he made suggesting the board had not made money available for transfers.
