Hull midfielder Robert Snodgrass has been ruled out for six months with a dislocated kneecap.

Tigers manager Steve Bruce revealed the extent of the injury to Snodgrass ahead of the club's Europa League qualifier against Lokeren in Belgium on Thursday, a club spokesman confirmed.

And it could get worse for Snodgrass who is due to undergo scans to investigate possible ligament damage.

Hull want three more

Hull boss Steve Bruce is preparing to reinvest the proceeds from this week's sale of striker Shane Long on up to three new players before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

We thought the offer that came in was too good too turn down. We will reinvest the money into the squad and I think the squad will be better for it.

I would still like at least another three players to come through the doors and with the money we have got for Shane that allows me to do that, so we will be active over the next few weeks.

– Hull City manager Steve Bruce
