Robbie Brady was delighted with Hull City's busy transfer window.

Hull smashed their club record transfer fee for the second time this season when bringing in striker Nikica Jelavic from Everton for a deal worth £7.5m, eclipsing the £5.25m paid for Tom Huddlestone.

Brady, asked about staying up, told the Hull Daily Mail: “I’m more than confident with the squad we’ve got now that we’ll do well, and come the end of the season we’ll be a long way away from that drop zone.

“The lads seem fine. It’s a confident group and with the new boys coming in it’s added to our strength.

“Shane’s a hungry lad who wants to do well here. Let’s hope he can keep going as he’s started.

“He showed good composure and it was a great finish. I was delighted for him to get his goal and hopefully there’s more to come.

“You win some and you lose some, but we’re more than confident we’ve got the players and the staff to be well away.

“It’s tight, but it’s exciting as well. It’s my first season in the Premier League and it’s all systems go. We’re up for the challenge.”
