The versatile defender's move to the Humberside club sees him reunited with his father, after the pair worked together at Birmingham

Hull City have completed the singing of defender Alex Bruce on signed a two-year deal, it has been revealed.
 
The 27-year-old has been training with the Tigers for the past three weeks and joins the club as a free agent having left Leeds United at the end of last season.
 
The deal sees Bruce rejoin his father Steve, who has managed the centre-back in the past.

"When you look at what's going around on the Bosman market, he makes a very good free transfer," said the Tigers boss, speaking about the acquisition.
 
"He's 27 and he'll handle this division. He's at the peak of his career and looks in good shape. I'm sure he'll be a decent acquisition.
 
"Defensively, in terms of numbers, we're a bit thin with the injury to Liam Rosenior and Jack Hobbs out until Christmas.
 
"It's imperative that you have cover in the right areas and Alex can fill in anywhere along the back line."
