Hull City boss Steve Bruce insists they're not chasing Watford striker Troy Deeney.

While the Tigers did ponder a move for Deeney last season, there are currently no plans to push for a deal in this transfer window.

Asked about the Deeney speculation, Bruce told Radio Humberside: "It's not true, I can say this time it's definitely not true.

"We enquired about Troy Deeney on deadline day last year.

"Before we signed Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic, we had a little nibble then, but that's all it was.

"This year, no, not interested."
