“His record speaks for itself, he’s made some massive achievements in football already so I just want to learn from him and the other coaching staff.

“Hopefully I can improve as a player under him.”

Bruce started Tshibola in his first game in charge of the team against Wolves at the weekend and the midfielder is clearly a part of the plans for his new gaffer.

The club have plenty of central midfield options but the likes of Ashley Westwood and Mile Jedinak have struggled to impress so far this season.

In the end Tshibola may become a crucial part of what Bruce decides to do with the club going forward.
