Meyler was reunited with former Black Cats boss Bruce when he joined the Championship club on a short-term loan in November and he has gone on to make 10 appearances for Hull, scoring three goals.

The boss is preparing to complete his first bit of business in the January transfer window after reaching a reported £1.5million deal for the 23-year-old with the Premier League club, with only personal terms left to be agreed.

Speaking after Hull's goalless draw at Blackpool on New Year's Day, Bruce told the Hull and East Riding Mail: "We've agreed a deal with Sunderland and now we'll just try and get the personal terms sorted with the player over the next 24 to 48 hours.

"He's done very well for us and I've said all along that it was imperative that we get our loan players tied up. We're doing our utmost to do that.

"It's a good sum of money and fair play to the owners again."

Meyler is also hopeful of finalising the deal, adding: "I'll leave it to my representatives and my father to sort out but I've been thrilled to work with the gaffer over the last two months.

"It's a great place to be and I've loved being here. Hopefully, we can sort something out."

Another deal Bruce is looking to negotiate is extending the stay of on-loan Manchester United winger Brady, whose existing contract was due to expire after Tuesday's trip to Bloomfield Road.

Bruce added of the Republic of Ireland international: "We're not sure if there's a possibility of a loan until the end of the season or to make it permanent. That's something that Manchester United will discuss over the next couple of days."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
