Wales’ Euro 2016 manager Chris Coleman is reportedly in frame to be named Hull City manager.
BBC Sport say Coleman who guided Wales to the Euro 2016 semi-finals a month after signing a new two-year contract with the Football Association of Wales before crashing out to Portugal is among the candidates Hull City want to take their vacant managerial position following the resignation of Steve Bruce last week.
“I’m told by a couple of City sources that Coleman is the man the Tigers want. Discussions have taken place and the ball is in his court.
“It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen because it’s a big decision for him. He’s a big hero in Wales, just signed a new contract and City is a club in flux at the moment.” Dave Burns, BBC Radio Humberside’s Hull City reporter stated.
Bruce who joined the Tigers in 2012 and led them to promotion to the Premier League twice and also an FA Cup final appearance in 2014, losing to Arsenal left Hull City following a reported breakdown in his relationship with vice-chairman Ehab Allam.
Coleman who last managed in the Premier League with Fulham in 2007 guided Wales to the Euro 2016 semi-finals a month after signing a new two-year contract with the Football Association of Wales. The Football Association of Wales and Hull are yet to comment.
The former Swansea City, Crystal Palace and Blackburn Rovers defender has also managed Coventry City, Real Sociedad in Spain and Greek side Larissa.
Former Everton manager Roberto Martinez who was sacked by the Merseyside club in May, and former Unites States coach Bob Bradley have also been linked with the vacancy.
