Hull City boss Phil Brown will prepare his squad for the Premiership with high-altitude training.

Brown has revealed that he is taking his squad to the Italian Alps for special high-altitude training at the start of next month.

City's stars will spend a week camped at Inter Milan's old training ground at Bormeo for the second successive year.

Brown said: "We went to Bormeo last summer and it paid rich dividends because we got off to a good start to the season."
