Hull have appointed Nick Barmby as their manager on a permanent basis.

Barmby, 37, took caretaker charge of the Tigers in November following Nigel Pearson's return to Leicester, initially overseeing a run of five wins in his first seven games.

A disappointing three-game losing streak soon followed but, after leading the Yorkshire club to a 3-1 FA Cup third round victory over Ipswich on Saturday, he has been handed the reins indefinitely.
