The Spaniard will go head-to-head with Bruce on Saturday as Boro travel to the KC Stadium to face the Championship leaders. Speaking ahead of the game, Karanka was full of praise for his opposite number.

Sunderland striker Danny Graham has joined Hull City on a one-year loan deal.

The 27-year-old had only been with the Black Cats since January after making a £5 million move from Swansea. But after failing to score in 13 appearances, he'll now spend next season at the KC Stadium.

Graham told Hull City's official website: "It's great to come to a club where everybody is on a high after winning promotion and I've only heard good things about this club.

"It's exactly the same as when I joined Swansea a couple of years ago, a club coming up into the Premier League.

"I know I'm coming to a good club with a top manager, a fantastic stadium and some very good players."

Graham has now linked up with the Tigers in Portugal for their pre-season campaign.
