Bruce feared he'd lost the Nigeria international.
â€śIt could be the most important piece of business we do this month,â€ť said Bruce to the Hull Daily Mail.
â€śIf Sone gets fit over the next couple of weeks, heâ€™s a top, top player as weâ€™ve seen time and again.
â€śHeâ€™s a special player for us, Iâ€™ve said that all along, so letâ€™s hope we see him doing what he does best in the next month or so.
â€śI think I can speak for every supporter when I say Iâ€™m delighted weâ€™ve got there now.â€ť
Asked if there had been any fear Aluko would leave, he said: â€śYes, at times. Maybe three months ago I didnâ€™t think it was possible.
â€śBut we kept badgering away at him, making phone call after phone call.
â€śThatâ€™s made him realise that heâ€™s wanted here. Iâ€™m delighted that heâ€™s committed for another couple of years.â€ť
