Hull City chief Ehab Allam is pleased with their summer market campaign.
The Tigers have invested heavily over the summer following their promotion back to the top-flight, signing eight players on permanent moves and three further season-long loan deals.
"We have been very encouraged by what we have seen in the opening three games of the season," Allam told the Hull Daily Mail.
"Aside from the opening 20 minutes at Chelsea, the performances have been absolutely superb and we have shown we have the quality to compete with sides at this level.
"Also, all the new signings have shown they can be quality additions for us this season.
"Whilst we have obviously not been the biggest spenders in the market, when it comes to squad strengthening in the window, we have added one of the highest numbers of players in 11."
