DONE DEAL: Hull name Nigel Adkins new manager

Hull City have named Nigel Adkins as new manager.

The former Southampton manager replaces Leonid Slutsky at the KC Stadium helm.

Adkins takes over a side struggling near the bottom of the Championship.

The Tigers have won just four times in 20 games since relegation from the Premier League last season.

Slutsky was tasked with leading their survival bid following Marco Silva's departure, but he was unable to change their fortunes.

Adkins has penned an 18-month deal, and will be joined at Hull by Andy Crosby.
