Championship star the focus of £1.5m bid from Premier League side

Following a second place finish in the Championship and the subsequent promotion to the Premier League that follows it looks as though Hull City boss Steve Bruce is already a busy man.

According to The Daily Mail Birmingham City centre-back Curtis Davies is already on Bruce’s radar with the experienced defender commanding a fee in the region of £1.5 million. It seems likely, however, that Hull will face stiff competition for such a lowly-valued, highly-rated player as Norwich are also keeping tabs on the situation.

In a bit of Brucey bonus extra gossip the Daily Mail also report that Hull are closing in on a deal for Sunderland midfielder Ahmed Elmohamady which will mean a quick-fire double pair of signings for next term, even though this campaign is yet to come to a close!

Back to Davies it looks as though he will make a perfect addition to Hull City’s defensive options. A player of experience including spending some time in the Premier League will be a much needed boost for the former Manchester United man Bruce.

Hull City fans: What do you make of these two early signings and who else could Bruce bring in to strengthen the side ready for next season?
