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 had to settle for a goalless draw on their competitive European debut as Tom Huddlestone missed a penalty and a point-blank follow-up against Slovakia's AS Trencin.
The Tigers, having qualified for a first ever campaign at Europa League level by finishing runners-up in the FA Cup, should have come away from their third qualifying round first leg at Zilina's Stadion pod Dubnom with victory but will now need a result in East Yorkshire next Thursday.
An hour had gone when Shane Long was felled in the area but Huddlestone - who missed in the shootout when Spurs lost to Basel in the 2013 competition - produced a dreadful double miss.
His penalty was comfortably saved by Milos Volesak but it was the secondary attempt, grazing the bar from a couple of yards with the goal yawning, that will haunt the midfielder.
