Yeah, they went there: Hull confirm Steve Bruce is in mix for England job

But Sam Allardyce remains the strong favourite to succeed Roy Hodgson.

HULL CITY HAVE confirmed boss Steve Bruce has held informal talks with the Football Association over the England manager’s job.

The position has been vacant for three weeks after Roy Hodgson resigned in the immediate aftermath of England’s defeat to Iceland at the Round of 16 stage of Euro 2016.

Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce was pictured emerging from the house of FA vice-chairman David Gill last week while Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe and United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann have also been mentioned as candidates.

Sunderland’s response was to urge the FA to do their business quickly so as to avoid disrupting their preparations for the new season, and Hull have done likewise.

Their statement read: “The club can confirm that manager Steve Bruce has held informal discussions regarding the England vacancy, although no official approach has been received from the FA.

“We would hope to see the FA conclude their business quickly in order to avoid further speculation regarding Steve ahead of what is a season of huge importance for the club following our return to the Premier League.”
