Hull have announced manager Steve Bruce has agreed a new deal, which will be signed by the end of business on Thursday.

City used their official Twitter feed to confirm that the 54-year-old will be extending his stay with them into a fourth season.

The former Sunderland boss took over at the KC Stadium in the summer of 2012 and immediately got them promoted back to the Premier League where they have stayed since.

During his reign Bruce has taken to Hull to the FA Cup Final - a 2014 defeat to Arsenal - and into European competition for the first time.

Speaking about agreeing to stay by the Humber, Bruce said: "I'm delighted to have committed my future to the club - we have achieved a lot in the few years we have been here but this is just the beginning of the journey.

"Premier League survival is now crucial for us at this time, as is improving our training facility as we look to continue to grow and become a solid, well-run Premier League club.

"I would like to thank the owners for their continued support as well as the fans; we have had the supporters backing since we arrived here in Hull and long may that continue."
