Bruce is keen to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new Premier League campaign, having seen a deal for Burnley striker Charlie Austin fall through due to a failed medical.

Reports on Tuesday claim the Hull boss has turned his attention to Graham, with Sunderland believed to be willing to let the forward go just six months after his £5million switch from Swansea.

Bruce claims Graham is a "very good player" and is reported to be keen on a season-long loan for the 27-year-old.

"There's lots and lots of players and it's always wrong for me to talk about them, but Graham is someone where there's been a bit of interest," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"He hasn't had the best of times in the north-east but he's a very, very good player. Whether it's possible, who knows? It's something that we're looking at but we haven't done anything just yet."

Steve Harper is one player who Bruce has managed to get on board, and the former Newcastle goalkeeper is delighted to have moved down the east coast.

"I really enjoyed training today it was fresh and new and exciting. It was perhaps something I should have done years ago," he told Sky Sports News.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
