Heroic Wales boss in line for shock Premier League move after Euro 2016 heroics

Wales manager Chris Coleman is in the frame to takeover at Hull City this summer following the departure of Steve Bruce, according to BBC Sport.

The Tigers saw their manager depart with just under three weeks to go before their season opener against Premier League champions Leicester City.

He is understood to have had a breakdown in his relationship with the club’s owners and leaves after a hugely successful four-year stint in charge.

Roberto Martinez and Bob Bradley have been touted as potential candidates, though it is thought Coleman remains in the frame.

Despite penning a new two-year deal prior to the European Champions, where he guided the side to an unprecedented semi-final berth, the interest is believed to be strong.

He last managed in the Premier League just under a decade ago with Fulham and a run of poor form saw him sacked before moving to La Liga side Real Sociedad.
