Hull City manager Steve Bruce has said that the signing of Manchester United's Robbie Brady on loan will give his team more options in wide positions.
The 20-year-old winger spent last season on loan with the Tigers, making over 30 league appearances and Bruce believes that having experienced Championship football, as well as a full pre-season with the Manchester United first team, he will be 'better this time around'.
"We haven’t really got any natural wide players," Bruce told hullcityafc.net. "The quality of Robbie is that he can play on the left or on the right, and even [on Tuesday against Wolves] he came on as an emergency left back or left wing-back.
"I think he’ll be better here this time around," he added. "He had a good start here last time and then, like most young players, he probably needed a rest and taking out of it, especially for a 19/20-year-old playing a full season."
After his season at the KC Stadium, Brady returned to Manchester United and took part in their pre-season schedule, before making his senior debut in a League Cup tie against Newcastle United, and Bruce is 'delighted' with the acquisition.
"He’s gained experience and I was very impressed the last time I saw him playing for Manchester United’s reserves.
"We’re delighted to get him and let’s hope that we can get one or two more in before the window shuts," said Bruce.
