Hull boss Barmby admits Man Utd relationship a major bonus

Hull City boss Nick Barmby admits their relationship with Manchester United is a huge bonus for the club.

Robbie Brady's extended loan continues a prosperous recent relationship between City and the Premier League giants, one that dates back to Fraizer Campbell's loan at the KC in 2007-08.

Manucho, Cameron Stewart, Corry Evans and Brady have since joined on-loan from Old Trafford and that number could be swelled as City court youngster Joshua King.

Barmby, whose eldest son Jack is also part of Manchester United's youth set-up, admits it is a link-up to cherish.

"It's massively beneficial because you're talking about one of the best clubs in the world," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"The way that they produce and develop their players, both on and off the pitch, rubs off on everyone else.

"They train well and are keen to learn. It's fantastic for us to have a relationship with someone like Man United, just as it is with Liverpool as well."
