Bruce not looking to add another forward.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has denied that the club are looking at bringing Wolves striker Kevin Doyle on board this summer, talkSPORT reports.
The Premier League new boys were reportedly close to agreeing a deal in the region of £3 million for the Republic of Ireland international, however, Bruce admitted that the reports aren’t true and he is not looking to add any more depth to his forward line.
“I don’t really know where that has come from. I have been linked with about 150 players and we have taken in four,” he said.
“We have brought in Danny Graham [on loan from Sunderland] and then we brought in big Yannick Sagbo from Evian last week so in that department we are OK at the moment.”
Hull are to begin their Premier League campaign with a tough trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea this weekend, but Bruce has insisted that he is looking forward to testing himself against Jose Mourinho once again.
“To say it is going to be tough is a bit of an understatement, but that’s what we are in the Premier League for,” he added.
“To take on the mighty Chelsea, with Jose coming back, should be a fantastic occasion.”
