Hull boss rules out Huddlestone exit

The 29-year-old midfielder has recently been linked with a return to the club where he started his career.

But Bruce insists the midfielder will be staying at Hull.

“I’ve got nothing to report either way and as I’ve said repeatedly I’ll do my utmost to ensure that I keep hold of the squad that I’ve got,” he told the club’s official website.

“We’d be absolutely crazy to try and dismantle it now. I’ve seen a report that Tom Huddlestone is going to Derby. Well I think I’d be off my rocker to be thinking of selling Tom Huddlestone to Derby at this particular moment.”
