Hull City boss Steve Bruce still keen on Jordan Rhodes

Hull City boss Steve Bruce reveals that he is still keen on signing Jordan Rhodes after seeing an initial bid rejected.

Hull City boss Steve Bruce has revealed that he is still trying to sign Jordan Rhodes after seeing an initial bid rejected.

The Premier League club made an offer of around £8m for the Scotland international last week, but they failed with their attempt to bring him to the KC Stadium.

However, after putting in a second bid, Bruce remains hopeful that the Tigers can land the 24-year-old before transfer deadline day.

"It's something that we're trying to progress if that's possible. It's always difficult when you're talking about other people's players but there has been a bid lodged," he told Sky Sports News.

"I believe the first bid was refused but I do believe the two clubs are still talking."

Rhodes scored 25 goals for Blackburn last season.
