Hull City confirm Nigel Adkins as their new manager

Hull City, the Championship club where Super Eagles full-back Ola Aina plays on loan from Chelsea, have appointed a new head coach to replace the sacked Leonid Slutsky.

Slutsky and Hull parted company on Sunday evening, after the Russian made a hard start to life in the Sky Bet Championship, guiding the Tigers to just four victories from their opening 20 fixtures of the season.

The Tigers won only four league games under the Russian and now face the prospect of successive relegations, with the club just three points above the drop zone.

"Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract".

Adkins will oversee his first training session on Thursday ahead of a home clash with Brentford on Saturday.

Hull had expected to mount a serious title challenge to try and gain an immediate promotion back to the Premier League after their relegation from the top flight last season.

Whether Adkins can turn things around at the KCOM Stadium remains to be seen, but the 52-year-old undoubtedly has more experience in the English game than his predecessor.

Adkins could stop the club from a free fall, having previously helped multiple teams rise through the tiers, starting with Scunthorpe United, who climbed to the Championship in 2007 and again in 2009.
