It has been confirmed that Hull City manager Steve Bruce is leaving the club by mutual consent.
The 55-year-old led the Tigers to promotion back to the Premier League in May, but since then, there's been uncertainty over the future ownership of the club, with takeover talks apparently halted, As a consequence he hasn't made a single significant signing in the transfer market, and what's more, his squad has been decimated by a series of pre-season injuries.
Now it's reported that there's been a breakdown of his relationship with the club's owners Assem and Ehab Allam. Supporters say they're sad to see him go. l
The Board of Directors would like to thank Steve for all his efforts since his appointment in 2012 culminating in a glorious day at Wembley in May which saw the Club bounce back into the Premier League. Steve has excelled in his role - both on and off the field - and will be remembered for being the most successful manager in our history to date.
Hull FC have announced the signing of young centre, Nick Rawsthorne, from Halifax RFLC for the 2017 season.
The 20-year-old has signed an initial one-year deal with an option in the club's favour should they wish to extend his deal.
A convert from rugby union, where he represented England U18s and Leeds Carnegie, Rawsthorne also had a spell in the academy at Leeds Rhinos before joining Halifax.
I'm really pleased to add Nick to the squad next year, I think he has all the attributes to become a first-team regular for our club.
He has been very impressive in the reserves competition this year for Halifax, particularly when he played against us, whilst is accuracy with his goal kicking is also a real plus.
He is at a great age to progress his career to the next level and along with Jack Logan coming through the long term future of our outside backs looks very promising.
Hull FC have announced the signing of Salford Red Devils centre Josh Griffin on a three-year deal from next season.
The 26-year-old has played for a number of Super League clubs, including Wakefield, Huddersfield and Castleford before switching to Rugby Union with Leeds Carnegie in 2012.
He returned to League two years later with Championship club Batley Bulldogs before joining brothers Darrell, now with Featherstone Rovers, and George, a former Hull KR junior, at Salford.
“I want to play in big games in front of big crowds and hopefully push for an international spot and I believe Hull is the best club to help me do that.
“Josh will be a great addition to our squad and I’m really looking forward to him joining the group.
“He’s a player we have had to put a lot of focus on when coming up against Salford over the last couple of seasons because of his physical presence both in defence and attack and his ability with the ball in hand."
