Steve Bruce is getting ready to splash the cash as he looks to build a Hull team capable of remaining in the Premier League.

He is set to conclude some of his first business of the summer, according to The Daily Mail, heading back to his old club Birmingham in order to complete the signing of centre-back Curtis Davies.

The two clubs have thrashed out a deal for the defender with a fee reportedly having been negotiated for £2.25 million.

Former Liverpool defender Jack Hobbs will travel in the other direction on loan.

The news will come as a boost for Birmingham who have been struggling financially in recent times.

Bruce is also keen to complete the signing of Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel. The Danish goalkeeper, son of former United legend Peter, has been highly impressive for the Foxes and looks certain to play in the Premier League again sooner or later.

Leicester had hoped it would be with them but Schemichel has begun to consider a possible exit from the club after they were knocked out of the Championship play-offs.

Bruce is also looking to complete the summer signing of former Sunderland midfielder and £2 million target Ahmed Elmohamady.
