Bruce guided the Tigers to promotion back to the Premier League last season.

The former Manchester United captain only announced he would remain at the KCOM Stadium last month.

The Tigers have asked that the FA now conclude their business with Bruce

The Club can confirm that manager Steve Bruce has held informal discussions regarding the England vacancy, although no official approach has been received from the FA.

We would hope to see the FA conclude their business quickly in order to avoid further speculation regarding

Steve ahead of what is a season of huge importance for the Club following our return to the Premier League.
