Hull boss Phelan hopes for job news this week

Hull City boss Mike Phelan hopes to be confirmed permanent manager this week.

Phelan saw his team earn a point at Burnley on Saturday.

"I've made it pretty clear I want to be in charge of this group of players. I think the players have made it quite clear too," he said.

"At one point I thought we were playing really well, we might win the game and then it's over to negotiations again...then at 1-0 down you think maybe not, maybe another week.

"But I'm sure things will get resolved. They probably will do, one way or another.

"We haven't fallen out or done anything drastic, we're taking it day by day and hopefully another week doesn't go by without it being resolved."
