Hull City have announced Nigel Adkins as their new head coach five days after Leonid Slutsky left by mutual consent on Saturday night.

Adkins will take charge of his first training session this morning and will be in charge of Hull's game against Brentford at the KCOM on Saturday.

The 52 year old has been in charge of clubs in this region before, winning promotion with Scunthorpe United in 2007.

His last managerial appointment was at Sheffield United in the 2015-16 season where they finished 11th and was sacked.

Hull City currently sit 20th in the championship three points above the relegation zone.

Adkins first task will be to advert the current form where they haven't won in seven games.
