Hull City linked with former Russia boss Leonid Slutsky

Hull City appear to be closing in on the appointment of Leonid Slutsky as their new manager as speculation intensifies over Marco Silva’s replacement.

It is widely reported that the 46-year-old Russian, who has been living in London since January, has held talks with the Tigers.

Slutsky, who managed his country at Euro 2016, quit CSKA Moscow – where he won three titles – in December to focus on getting a job in England.
