Mike Phelan to be confirmed Hull City manager

Mike Phelan is set to be confirmed as Hull City manager next week.

The Sun says the 53-year-old has been in temporary charge since Steve Bruce quit the Tigers two months ago.

Sir Alex Ferguson's former No2 at Manchester United has now clinched the full-time position after guiding Hull to two victories from their opening three Premier League matches.

Phelan held talks over his future with outgoing co-owner Ehab Allam on Thursday, and discussions over his deal will continue over the weekend.

The club have just been bought by a Chinese consortium for £100m, but the new ownership will not affect Phelan's position.
