Steve Bruce delighted as Hull City make four deadline day signings

Hull City manager Steve Bruce is delighted over the club’s transfer business this summer, signing four new players by the end of deadline day.

Hull were extremely busy on Monday, as they purchased £10million Abel Hernandez from Palermo, £3.5million Mohamed Diame from West Ham, Gaston Ramirez from Southampton on loan, and Newcastle ace Hatem Ben Arfa also on a loan deal.

The Tigers have spent a total of £36.5million to reshape the squad, ending up with 11 additions over the course of the transfer window.

And Bruce believes the players he bought will address various issues in the squad, as well as increasing the attacking output with new creative players.

He told Sky Sports: “On paper there are some really, really good signings we’ve made today.

“I think what summed the day up was when I rang Ben Arfa to see where he was and he was stuck in York, and you’re thinking ‘What’s he doing in York?’ That was a bit fraught, but overall we’re delighted with what we’ve done.

“We’ve managed to bring what seems like four players on the day, but two or three of them have had a week’s work gone into them.

“We got what we wanted.”

Hull City will continue their Premier League season on September 16, facing West Ham United.
