Cape Town - Steve Bruce is delighted to have secured a new three-year contract as manager of Premier League club Hull City and is fully committed to taking the club forward, he told a news conference on Friday.

The former Manchester United captain joined Hull in June 2012 and led them to promotion from the Championship (second tier) in his first season.

A year later they finished 16th in the Premier League and reached the FA Cup final, where they lost narrowly to Arsenal after leading 2-0.

This season they lie 15th, five points clear of the relegation places but Egyptian-born owner Assem Allam has caused controversy by wanting to change the club's name to Hull City Tigers.

"I'm delighted because I've enjoyed the last two and a half years," Bruce said.

"What we've started here is about trying to establish ourselves as a Premier League club.

"Let's hope we have another two and a half years like we've had."

Bruce will take his side on the road on Saturday when the Tigers face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium

The Foxes and the Tigers kick-off at 17:00.
