Bruce never considered quitting Hull for Southampton

Steve Bruce has insisted there was never any chance of him leaving Hull City this summer for Premier League rivals Southampton, Sky Sports has reported.

It was said that Bruce was among the candidates to replace Tottenham Hotspur-bound Mauricio Pochettino on the south coast, with Ronald Koeman eventually appointed in place of the Argentine.


But Bruce has told the Hull Daily Mail that he had no intention of leaving the KC Stadium and as far as he is aware, was never a contender for the Saints vacancy. “I don’t know where that came from,” he protested.


“I haven’t got an agent but all agents seem to claim to represent me. That means a lot of rubbish comes out,” Bruce continued. “There was never any intention for me to move on. I’ve said it from day one that I’m perfectly happy here.


“I’m one of the fortunate ones. The people who employ me let me manage and that is vitally important for me.”


Bruce has been at Hull since 2012, having left his position at Sunderland a year earlier. He took the Tigers out of the Championship and to the FA Cup final last season, where they were beaten by Arsenal, but still qualified for the Europa League.


The former Manchester United captain has also managed Wigan Athletic, twice, Birmingham City, Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United. He ended his playing career with the Blades having represented United for almost a decade, winning three Premier League titles.
