Hull City boss Steve Bruce not giving up on Michael Dawson signing

Hull City boss Steve Bruce hints that he will launch a new bid for Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has hinted that he will launch a fresh attempt to sign Michael Dawson from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 30-year-old, who has been told that he can leave White Hart Lane, is thought to have stalled on a £5m move to the KC Stadium because the contract offered was not long enough.

Bruce, who has already signed Robert Snodgrass, Jake Livermore and Thomas Ince this summer, hopes that he can strengthen his squad further.

"To have secured Jake and brought in Tom Ince and Robert Snodgrass, that shows how far we're progressing as a club," he told the Hull Daily Mail.

"A manager is always greedy. Ideally we'd still like another two or three in, especially with what we've got ahead in Europe.

"Michael I've always liked, there's no disputing that. But at the end of the day, he's Tottenham captain with time left on his contract. It's difficult but it's something we've had a nibble at. We'll see if it happens."

Dawson has made 324 appearances for Spurs since joining them from Nottingham Forest in 2005.
