Hull City manager Steve Bruce eyes Sunderland's David Meyler and Ahmed Elmohamady
HULL City will look to step up their activity in the transfer market this week as Steve Bruce attempts to land his top targets ahead of Friday’s deadline.
With less than five days remaining to do their final business of the summer, City are hopeful of landing at least two new signings before facing Bolton at the KC Stadium this weekend.
Sunderland midfield pair David Meyler and Ahmed Elmohamady are understood to remain at the forefront of Bruce’s thoughts, but Doncaster’s James Coppinger and Nottingham Forest’s Guy Moussi are being considered as other options.
City would prefer to take both Meyler and Elmohamady on long-term loans and the £10m arrival of winger Adam Johnson at the Stadium of Light is sure to help the Tigers’ cause.

With Sunderland expected to do more business of their own this week, Martin O’Neill could give the green light to the pair heading out on loan in the next 48 hours.
Bruce has publicly declared his desire to recruit a new central midfielder and a wide man and will hope his search bears fruit before Friday night’s deadline.
Assistant manager Steve Agnew faced the media after Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Charlton and said: “It will be a busy period with the phones ringing.
“We’re like any other club and we’ll be looking to strengthen over the next week. I’m sure Steve will be looking at bringing one or two in.
“There’s nothing imminent at this stage so it will be a case of watching this space.”
A goal-less stalemate at Charlton confirmed to Bruce that a greater creativity is needed in his City side as a second blank in a week denied the Tigers all three points at The Valley.
