Hull City boss Steve Bruce was pleased with their winter market work.
As well as moving out Tom Cairney (Blackburn), Aaron Mclean (Bradford), Cameron Stewart (Leeds) and loaning Nick Proschwitz to Barnsley, Danny Graham and Jack Hobbs also saw their time at the KC Stadium ended yesterday.
Graham’s season-long loan from Sunderland was curtailed to allow him to join Middlesbrough, while Nottingham Forest also finally landed their man when signing Hobbs on a four and a half year contract for a figure close to £1m, reports the Hull Daily Mail.
“On the whole I’m very pleased with what we’ve done in January, of course I am. I’m delighted with what we’ve done,” said Bruce.
“Over the last couple of weeks we’ve brought in two players (Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long) who have come straight into the team and will improve us.
“From what I saw the other night (1-0 loss at Palace), I know we didn’t score, but we looked more of a threat than we have done.
“They need time to gel and work together but I’ve been very, very pleased with the two of them.”
