Steve Bruce eyes new deal with Hull

Hull City boss Steve Bruce is set to begin fresh contract talks in the summer.

Steve Bruce expects to sit down with Hull City officials this summer to begin discussions over a contract extension.   

Hull have had a fine to life back in the top flight, currently sitting 11th in the table and have a place in the quarter-final of the FA Cup.

Bruce told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I'm very happy here and I would have thought we'll sit down in the summer," 

"In football management, you're always wary that there is a dark moment around the corner so I just want to get the season finished with us in this division.

"It's a hard job managing in the big league and it fatigues you but it's what I do and what I enjoy. There is no feeling quite like winning on a Saturday afternoon.

"The Hull people and supporters have made me very welcome here". 

Bruce led Hull to the Premier League with a second-placed finish in the Championship last season, following a dramatic final day of the campaign. 

Hull will face Bruce's former club, Sunderland in the FA Cup next week as they look to progress to the semi-finals. But Bruce has his eyes firmly on Premier League survival;

"I've said all along that you need 10 wins to stay up and I'm not going to change from that," 

"If we can win our next two games then I think that will be enough because you're always going to draw a few games.

"There's that many teams at the bottom that I can't see that many getting to 38 points," he explained.
