Hull City have been rather quiet in the summer transfer window
Hull City have been rather quiet in the summer transfer window so far and this might leave the club facing a shortage of players according to manager Steve Bruce.
Some couple of high-profile departures follow with the lack of replacements mean that Bruce is already fighting to keep the squad in the strongest possible shape. The Championship is one of the unforgiving leagues in all of Europe and it will take a lot of strength in order to get out of this division. Due to various budget cuts by the club owner, Bruce has not been able to strengthen the team as he would like to.
Despite this setback, Hull have made a decent start with a win and a draw from the opening two games. Many expected the recent 1-1 draw with Wolves since it was a game against fellow promotion challenging outfit. However, Bruce will be aware that the team will have to pick up victories and make a good start to the campaign. Players like James Chester and Robbie Brady have left the club in the summer. Midfielder Tom Huddlestone is also a key member of the squad but he is also linked with a move back to the Premier League. It remains to be seen if Hull can keep their remaining star assets.
"It is not going to be easy to go back up, it never is.But I realised after three years of me being there, it was time for me to go or time to turn around the squad and start again. That is what we are hoping to do.If two or three come on deadline day, that leaves me chronically short. I can't really do anything. With all the doom and gloom, we are unbeaten from the start of pre-season.Slowly but surely, we are starting to lift the gloom,” said Bruce
