Hull City boss Steve Bruce has likened Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse to his firmer Manchester United teammate David Beckham.

Saints thumped Hull on Saturday.

Bruce said: "Ward-Prowse, in particular, reminds me of a young David Beckham, with the way he whips in crosses.

"Southampton have some very good players and as an Englishman I am pleased they are from this country."
