Hull City boss Steve Bruce has said he may talk to Rio Ferdinand over a possible summer move, after it was confirmed that the former England star is to leave Manchester United. 

The 35-year-old is believed to be weighing up his options after he was told by the Red Devils he would not be offered a new contract at Old Trafford, and has already been linked to a host of clubs including Arsenal, La Galaxy and Galatasaray. 

But with his future undecided, former United defender Bruce, has opened the door to a potential switch to Hull, and may contact him in the coming days. 

"We've cast an eye over a few things, I haven't looked into that yet," he said. "Rio has been a wonderful player... who knows?" said Bruce, after his side's FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal. 

"If he fancies a game, once we've got over the weekend, then I'll see if we'll give him a call."

Ferdinand enjoyed a sparkling career at Old Trafford, winning the Premier League title six times, since his £30 million move from Leeds United back in 2002.

He was also part of the Champions League winning side of 2008, and picked up three League Cups during his time at the club, an time that saw him form arguably the best centre-back partnership of the Premier League era alongside Nemanja Vidic.
