Swansea boss Michael Laudrup says it is likely he will bring in a goalkeeper in January as Michel Vorm needs knee surgery.
Manager Jose Mourinho believes Ashley Cole will earn a contract extension at Chelsea.
Sunderland striker Danny Graham is to join Premier League newcomers Hull City on a season-long loan, according to Sky sources.
The former Swansea striker has returned from Sunderland's pre-season tour of Italy.
He has not scored a goal for Sunderland in 13 appearances since his £5m move to the Stadium of Light in January.
Bruce, who saw a move for Burnley's Charlie Austin fall through, admitted his interest in Graham earlier this week.
"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."
