Hull Manager Steve Bruce has dismissed rumours that he's on the verge of being sacked.

The Tigers are in the relegation zone after losing four games on the bounce and it doesn't get any easier for them tomorrow as they take on Premier League champions Manchester City.

Hull City have agreed a £3m fee to sign Lokomotiv Moscow striker Dame N'Doye.

The 29 year old has been representing his country at the Africa Cup of Nations, but the Tigers have now made their move after Senegal were knocked out of the competition.

N'Doye has scored 27 goals in 66 appearances for Lokomotiv since joining them from Copenhagen in the summer of 2009.

A deal's also been agreed in principle to bring Spurs' former England winger Aaron Lennon to the KC on loan.

“With N’Doye the fee is agreed but there’s still a lot of work to be done," said manager Steve Bruce. "And that goes for Aaron Lennon too. We hope that we can bring the pair of them in."

Bruce: Plans in place to ease injury crisis

Sport now and Hull City manager Steve Bruce has bemoaned his side's list of injuries ahead of the trip to West Ham on Sunday.

The Tigers slipped into the Premier League's bottom three last week following defeat at West Brom. Both strikers Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez were injured during the game.

They joined a growing casualty list at the KC Stadium but Bruce says plans are in place to ease the current crisis:

Representatives from both clubs will attend a tribunal on Thursday to fix the level of compensation due to the Championship side, Press Association Sport understands.

Ince moved to the KC Stadium in July after his Blackpool contract had expired, but as he is only 22 his former club are entitled to a fee.

Ince started City's first three Premier League games of the season but was subsequently loaned to Nottingham Forest, returning to feature against Arsenal in the FA Cup and West Brom in the league.
