Hull City boss Steve Bruce is delighted with their deal for Shane Long.
Long will face former club West Bromwich Albion today.
â€śWest Bromâ€™s loss has certainly been our gain,â€ť he told the Hull Daily Mail.
â€śWe took advantage of him coming to the end of his contract. Heâ€™s had a really good start to his life here and quickly made himself popular with our supporters.
â€śIâ€™m sure heâ€™ll be wanting to do well again and score against his old club, thatâ€™s only natural, but I donâ€™t think heâ€™ll think heâ€™s got anything to prove.
â€śI know how popular Shane was with West Brom supporters.
â€śI donâ€™t think Shane Longâ€™s got anything to prove to them. They know heâ€™s an honest lad who always gave his best there.â€ť
