Alex Bruce turns down several offers to stay at Hull City

Published Add your comment

Alex Bruce has shown his loyalty to Hull City by rejecting a handful of bids from clubs at a lower level in order to maintain Premier League football with the Tigers.

But now the gaffer's son is desperate for the opportunity to put pen to paper in order to renew his contract at the KC Stadium.

Since making the move from West Yorkshire to East Yorkshire, the 30-year-old has made 56 appearances for the club. Despite the fact that he is getting older, Bruce has no doubts about retaining his career under his father at Hull.

The stalemate at Anfield on Saturday was probably one of the defenders brightest results in his career, bar the club's 3-1 victory over Liverpool last season.

Bruce has featured in some of Hull's more important fixtures over his time at the club as he is seen as the rock who is never afraid to make a challenge.

His venomous double-tackle over Danny Welbeck and then Tom Cleverley went uncomplemented against Manchester United last season, not to mention his header cleared off the line by Kieran Gibbs in their famously historical FA Cup Final in May.

Bruce is certainly a player in the shadows but when he is released from his cage, he is not someone to mess with.

"I have worked a very long time to get into the Premier League and I'm not going to give it up just like that," Bruce said to reporters.

The 30-year-old is put to shame when critics say that he is only playing at this level because of his dad.

"I have a thick skin when it comes to comments like that. I want to be merited for my hard work," he added.

Talks over his contract renewal are still yet to take place but according to his father Steve, those talks are imminent.

"He's a wonderful boy to coach, not just because he's my son, but because he puts in 100% every time."
