Hull manager Phil Brown insists he is "fully focused" on his job despite his son's arrest on suspicion of drug possession.

Brown, 49, told the Hull Daily Mail he was concentrating on saving the struggling side from relegation despite the arrest and caution of his son Jamie for possession of drugs.

Mr Brown said the arrest was a "personal family matter", and told the paper: "My focus of attention is 100% on Hull City staying in the Premier League."

He added: "I am a strong enough character to get through whatever is thrown at me. I appreciate the concerns but I will stress again I am fully focused on my job at Hull City."

The Sun reported on Tuesday that Jamie, 25, was arrested for possession of cocaine after being found slumped outside a nightclub.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said the arrest took place in Ocean Road, South Shields, on Saturday night.

"At around 10.30pm on Saturday April 25, police in South Tyneside arrested a 25-year-old man for possession of a controlled drug," he said.

"He later received a caution."
