Steve Bruce has resigned from his position as Hull City manager just 21 days before the start of the new Premier League season, according to news reports.

Bruce has had informal talks recently with the English FA about the England manager position, but the position is closer to be filled by Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce.

Hull City have commented on the subject in an official statement that read: “”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.”

The 55-year-old has supposedly missed training on Friday and has handed his resignation to the club ending his four-year tenure with the Tigers.

The reasons for the Englishman’s departure are reported to be due to the uncertainty in the KC Stadium following reports of a takeover of the club and the lack of summer recruitment.

Ahmed Elmohamady, who recently renewed his contract with the Tigers, will find himself training under a new manager other than Bruce who brought the Egyptian to the Premier League when he was Sunderland manager.

Bruce, alongside David Moyes, has been also linked to a return to his old position as Sunderland manager if Sam Allardyce is handed the Three Lions managerial position.
