Simon Grayson has emerged as a candidate for the Hull City job following Nigel Adkins’ shock exit

And former Sunderland and Leeds boss Grayson is in the frame to take over at Hull.

Grayson, 49, has been out of work since his contract ended at Bradford last May.

Adkins, whose deal expires at the end of this month, turned down a new contract at the KCOM stadium.


The 54-year-old former Southampton and Scunthorpe boss took over in December 2017.

After a disappointing start the Tigers climbed the table steadily and at one point looked dark horses for a play-off place.

Fans were happy with Adkins’ improvement but the former physio decided he had had enough.

Adkins bizarrely said he felt his and the club’s futures were “not aligned”.

Hull finished 13th in the Championship last season.

Grayson, meanwhile, was ridiculed for his short-lived role trying to rebuild Sunderland after their relegation from the Premier League in 2017.

Featuring on the Netflix documentary Sunderland Till I Die, Grayson struggled as the Black Cats faltered on the pitch in a campaign that ended with relegation to League One.

Grayson was sacked after just 18 games in charge.

He then moved to Bradford but left after four months when he failed to keep them in the third tier.
