Steve Bruce’s departure from the KC Stadium has been confirmed by Hull City.
The news comes just days after Bruce was interviewed for the England manager’s job.
“The Board of Directors would like to thank Steve for all his efforts since his appointment in 2012 culminating in a glorious day at Wembley in May which saw the Club bounce back into the Premier League,” an official statement read.
“Steve has excelled in his role – both on and off the field – and will be remembered for being the most successful manager in our history to date.”
The 55-year-old wanted assurances about his role with Hull, who have put takeover talks on hold until September
