Mike Phelan will finally sign a deal to be named as the permanent manager of Hull City on Thursday.
Sky Sports News report that Phelan’s deal will be announced on Thursday afternoon after a deal was agreed.
Phelan was appointed as successor to Steve Bruce, who walked out of the club on the eve of the season after disagreements over the club’s lack of progress in the transfer market following promotion.
Bruce has since taken time out of the game and been appointed Aston Villa manager, while Phelan’s caretaker role has still remained officially temporary.
Hull started the season in tremendous fashion with two wins from their two league games, against Leicester and Swansea.
Since then, Hull have only taken one point from five matches, but that is enough for Phelan to be given the job on a full-time basis.
