Hull are reportedly set to finally hand a permanent contract to Mike Phelan this week after months of speculation.
The 54-year-old has been in caretaker charge of the club since the summer after Steve Bruce decided to jump ship before the start of the current campaign.
Phelan, who won August’s manager-of-the-month award, has made no secret of his desire to take the job permanently.
The Hull Daily Mail has claimed that Phelan and vice chairman Ehab Allam have been involved in talks over the international break.
It’s understood that Phelan will be confirmed as the new full-time manager in the next week as they look to provide some stability at the KCOM Stadium.
The Humberside outfit have picked up seven points seven games in the Premier League this term, winning twice and drawing once under the guidance of Phelan.
