Hull City: Nigel Adkins appointed as Tigers boss

7 December 2017

Hull City have moved quickly to replaced the departed Leonid Slutsky, with Nigel Adkins taking charge at the KCOM Stadium on an 18-month deal.

Adkins, who guided Southampton to promotion from the Championship in 2012, takes over with the club sitting 20th in the division, and will be joined by assistant Andy Crosby.

The 52-year-old also took the Saints up from League One, and has two more promotions under his belt with Scunthorpe United – one of which came alongside the League One title in 2007.

More recently, Adkins was employed at Reading and then Sheffield United, from whom he departed at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

It's straight onto the training ground and into the dugout for the new man in charge, with the first test coming at home against Brentford this Saturday.
