Hull City make move to secure Nigel Adkins successor



Hull City have made an official approach to Doncaster Rovers as they look to speak to Grant McCann about succeeding Nigel Adkins as the Tigers new boss.

It was revealed earlier this month that the former Southampton chief would be leaving and the Championship side have been on the lookout for his replacement since the news broke.

And, BBC Sheffield reporter Andy Giddngs has confirmed on Twitter that an approach has now been made for McCann, who had been linked with the role recently.

However, Donny plan to speak to their boss to see if he is interesting in talking to Hull before responding to the request.

McCann has only had one season with Rovers but he really impressed, taking the side to the play-offs despite operating on a very limited budget and implementing an attractive style of play too, which caught the eye.

Prior to that, he had worked with former club Peterborough, where he was in charge for over 100 games before he was dismissed in February last year.

The Verdict

This would be a smart move from Hull as McCann has shown he can build an attractive style of play on a limited budget and importantly get results too.

Of course, it’s a big step up to the Championship but he deserves a chance after the work he has done at the Keepmoat Stadium in the past year.

Given Doncaster’s response to the approach it seems as though they are going to let McCann decide what he wants to do.

so, he has a very big decision to make in the coming days and even with the uncertainty surrounding Hull off the pitch, you would be very surprised if he didn’t speak to them about the job.

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
