Hull close on Aluko move
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has expressed his excitement over the possible move form former Rangers starlet Sone Aluko.

Aluko will arrive on a free transfer regarding the medical is successful and will instantly link up with the Hull outfit. Tiger's boss Bruce has urged the new man to improve further on his performance last season and praised him on the many positions he is capable of playing in.
"Sone is someone I've always kept an eye on," Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I had him as a kid at Birmingham when he was considered to be the next superstar. I can remember taking him on tour at 16."
"It took him a while to develop. Some players mature quickly and others take their time to settle into senior football."
"But he's worked hard on his game and he's really come on in Scotland in the last couple of years. He really shot to prominence last year, he took it by storm."
