Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom will be joining teammate Isaac Hayden on loan at the KC Stadium for the 2015-16 season.

Akpom has been impressive when he has been given a chance in pre-season matches and in early round Cup matches. A move to relegated Hull City will presumably give him experience as he attempts to make the difficult leap from the Arsenal youth team to the Arsenal senior squad. The talent appears to be there but with Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud ahead of him it was always unlikely he was going to get significant playing time anywhere other than the Arsenal U21 side. Arsenal supporters will have good cause to tune in to Hull City matches this season.

20-year-old Arsenal center back/holding midfielder Isaac Hayden has gone out on loan to Hull City for the 2015-16 season.

Arsenal have been active today signing Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla to contract extensions and loaning Jon Toral to Birmingham City and Hayden to Hull City. The 20-year-old has represented England at each age level and now looks to pick up his first taste of first team football that means something in the Championship with newly relegated Hull City. If he can secure a place in Steve Bruce's line-up the it will be an invaluable experience as the player looks to secure a spot in the senior Arsenal squad over the next few years.

Norwich have finally secured the signing of Hull winger Robbie Brady, with a medical set to take place in the next 48-hrs…

The long-running Robbie Brady saga – which seems to have ran as long as the Brady Bunch did – has finally come to a successful conclusion. With Norwich and Hull agreeing a fee thought to be around £7m for the winger. The player has agreed terms and will undergo a medical this week. Relations have been strained between the clubs, with Hull boss Steve Bruce labelling bids of £2.5m and £3m as ‘embarrassing’ and ‘insulting’. Hull haven’t budged from their initial £7m valuation for 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international they signed from Manchester United and went on to play over 100 matches for the club. Norwich will be relieved they have finally made a high-profile signing after a frustrating summer and are still in the market for a center-forward, at least.

Robbie Brady has turned down a new contract at Hull City and the proposed move to Norwich City looks imminent…

Norwich’s drawn out pursuit of Hull winger Robbie Brady could have entered the final straight, with the Republic of Ireland international turning down the offer of an improved deal to stay at the Championship club. Even Hull boss Steve Bruce has admitted defeat, acknowledging that the lure of the PL is too strong. ‘I have done everything I can. He’s had two seasons in the top flight and wants to carry on. Simple as that.’ So now it comes down to price. Bruce wants £9 million and labelled Norwich’s opening bids of £2m, £2.5m and £3m ‘ridiculous and embarrassing’. But with the season inching closer and only two new faces added so far, the Canaries are ready to talk turkey and a compromise of around £7m is expected to be reached.

Chuba Akpom scored three and Jack Wilshere scored the other and chipped in an assist as Arsenal beat a Singapore XI in their first competitive match of the pre-season.

With supporters clamoring for another forward, Chuba Akpom started the process of putting his name forward for more playing time. A Singapore XI certainly isn't Manchester United or Chelsea but he has to start somewhere and he did so in style. Jack Wilshere continued the great form that he showed for England in Euro qualifying earlier in the summer. Arsenal will take a step up in level of competition on Saturday with a match against Everton at Singapore Stadium.

Norwich have been put off a move for Robbie Brady by Hull’s £7 million asking price…

The proposed transfer of Robbie Brady to Norwich has hit the buffers because Hull are demanding too much money for the winger. Norwich boss Alex Neil has identified the Republic of Ireland international as key to his plans on their return to the PL, but value Brady at £4.5 million. Hull want £7 million for the former Manchester United man who spent two years on loan at the club before making the move permanent in January 2013. He was a regular last season, playing 34 times and will add PL experience but if a compromise cannot be made Norwich will turn their attention elsewhere. QPR winger Matt Phillips was a player of interest, but he looks on the verge of a move to West Brom so Norwich could be left frustrated.

Norwich have targeted Hull’s Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady as their number one target after losing out on Luke Garbutt…

Norwich have reportedly made a £2 million offer for Robbie Brady, after primary target Luke Garbutt committed to a five-year deal with Everton (and will spend next season on loan at Bournemouth). The 23-year-old left-footer who can operate as a winger or at left-back came through the ranks and Manchester United but has spent the last four seasons at Hull, the first two on loan. The chance to stay in the PL will naturally appeal and current boss Steve Bruce has made it clear he expects players to leave and will not stand in their way. Saying, ‘We are going to lose players because PL clubs will want them. That is the big thing we have to deal with.’ So it just seems a question of price, with £2 million the Canaries’ opening gambit.

Norwich are rumored to be preparing a bid for Hull City left back/left midfielder Robbie Brady as they prepare for life in the Premier League.

Brady played well for Hull City in a variety of roles at the Premier League level over the past two seasons. He started out as a dedicated winger who was very dangerous early in the 2013-14 season. An injury stalled his momentum that season but a move to more of a wing-back role during the 2014-15 season saw him string together a strong run of starts to close out the season. He would be a fine starter and/or utility player for a newly-promoted club to bring on as Hull City are likely looking to shed some salary.

Tom Huddlestone looks set to remain at Hull City – for the moment at least – after undergoing minor surgery to remedy a persistent ankle problem.

Huddlestone has been heavily linked with a move away from the KC Stadium with some reports even suggesting a deal had been agreed for around $8 million to Aston Villa. However any move before the start of the new campaign looks highly unlikely after Huddlestone went under the knife to clean out his joint. The procedure itself was pretty straight-forward and Huddlestone is expected to be available for the season opener in early August and should he hit the ground running then interested parties will have until September 1, 2015 to thrash out a a deal. Steve Bruce will be hoping his side can make a swift return to the BPL but the enormity of the task cannot be underestimated having released a number of first team players including the likes of Paul McShane, Liam Rosenior and Maynor Figueroa.

Tim Sherwood is ready to make a £5.5m bid for Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

Huddlestone is a solid midfielder who Hull City don't need in the Championship and should provide Aston Villa with good depth at the midfielder position. He is unlikely to be a fantasy stud by any stretch of the imagination as he averaged just four fantasy points per match this past season, but he could help Aston Villa avoid relegation next season with some much needed depth, especially since they have lost Tom Cleverley to Everton.

Hull City have released a statement confirming Robert Snodgrass has not suffered a setback during his recovery from a serious knee injury and the midfielder will continue to step up his rehab.

Steve Bruce invested heavily in the Scottish international last summer but the unfortunate Snodgrass suffered a terrible knee dislocation just 40 minutes into his Tigers’ career ruling him out for between 9-12 months. His loss coupled with injuries to other key players - Nikica Jelavic [21 starts] following knee surgery and Mo Diame [2 starts in 2015] due to a persistent knee problem - ultimately had a huge bearing as Hull struggled to absorb their losses with such a small squad. Recovery of the trio is paramount if Hull hope to bounce straight back into the BPL.

Leicester City are interested in Hull City defender Curtis Davies.

Davies was injured for the latter part of the season and was a big part of why Hull were relegated. His presence was missed once he was ruled out and Hull struggled. He brings a good mix of skill and experience and is rightfully being pursued by a number of teams including Leicester City, Crystal Palace, and Watford. Davies can be a fantasy star due to phantom points alone, so he will be a good fantasy pick next season if he's at Leicester City.
Jun 4 - 5:42 AM

Steve Harper, Liam Rosenior, Paul McShane, Maynor Figueroa, Yannick Sagbo and Joe Dudgeon were all released by Hull City as the club prepares for life in the Championship.

Harper, who ended the season as Hull City's first choice keeper at the age of 40, was released. Between Harper, Rosenior, McShane and Figueroa the club released veteran players that were probably all on higher wages than feasible for a club that will be dealing with life in the second tier next season. Harper, in particular, showed that he is still a viable reserve and could catch on elsewhere in the league if he chooses to continue his career.

Abel Hernandez has been suspended for the first three matches of next season for a punch thrown at Phil Jones in Hull City's final match of the season.

Whether Hernandez is still with Hull City in the Championship next season remains to be seen but if he is, he will miss out on the club's first three matches. The incident was not seen by any of the match officials during the course of play so it was eligible to be ruled on after the fact. Rumors have the Uruguay international leaving the club over the summer as they look to trim their wage bill for life in the Championship.

Alex Bruce, Steve Bruce and the entire Bruce family have been relegated after a final day draw with Manchester United.

Hull City needed a win and a Newcastle draw to stay up. Instead they got a draw and a Newcastle win meaning they will be relegated. Hull City supporters will be frustrated that they couldn't even manage a goal in their effort to stay up...even after Marouane Fellaini was sent off in the 77th minute.
