The Sun claim that Bruce, 55, is currently the favoured option to take over if, as seems likely, Villa are relegated from the top flight for the first time in almost 30 years.

It is a mischievous report given the fact that Hull City are currently battling to get back into the Premier League themselves after relegation last season, although many believe that Remi Garde will not be entrusted with any such task.

Bruce, who might be in trouble himself if the Tigers do not bounce straight back, has previously led two teams to automatic promotion from the Championship – Hull City in 2013 and Birmingham City in 2007 while he also got Villa’s big rivals up via the play-offs in 2002.
