Hull boss Bruce confirms push for Harry Maguire

Hull City boss Steve Bruce hopes to close a deal for Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire.

The Tigers are expected to make an improved offer of £2 million for the youngster.

Bruce told the Hull Daily Mail: "We like him. We tabled a bid which was rejected. I think we'll revisit it.

"We've watched him a lot over the last year and he's someone we've got an interest in. Let's see if we can get a deal done."

He added: "I'm all for young British players and trying to give them a chance but with that comes a huge premium.

"In the old days you could get a League One player for £200,000. That's not the case any more."
