Long has been linked with a move to the KC Stadium but his wife, who is expecting their second child, tweeted that she told her husband that a move wasn't worth the stress while he was still under contract.

"Not going anywhere! Told Shane, I'm happy here and with baby on way, it's not worth the stress when still in contract! He agreed," she said.

Hull defender Davies, who lives in East Yorkshire with his girlfriend, said: "I wouldn't have my missus telling me what to do.

"I'd say she would have to move because that is what is best for him and his family.

"This is football. What I would say to any wife or girlfriend is, 'This is what's paying the bills'.

"If this is the right move for him and this is the right contract, I'd say she would have to move because that is what is best for him and his family."

Hull manager Steve Bruce issued an apology to West Brom on Thursday following reports that the Tigers had agreed a deal to sign Long.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
