Phelan offered Hull job


Mike Phelan has confirmed he has been offered the manager's job at Hull.

Phelan was named caretaker manager following Steve Bruce's surprise departure just three weeks before the start of the new season.

Despite a lengthy injury list, the Tigers have won two of their four games to sit eighth in the Premier League and their impressive start resulted in Phelan being named Manager of the Month for August.

He has been in negotiations with the clubs owners this week but he has yet to put pen to paper on a deal that would see him take the job on a permanent basis.

"It's a case now of sifting through the offer and getting down to what hopefully will be further discussions," he told BBC Radio Humberside.

"I don't want to talk about the money, I don't want to talk about what the contract entails because, to be frank, it's nobody else's business.

"You do want parity with the Premier League, and going forward hopefully that's what will happen."

Owners Assem Allam and Ehab Allam are in the process of trying to sell the club and Phelan admits he does not know who is involved in the managerial decision.

"There's still the takeover in the background and I find myself in the middle of that, trying to sort out my future," Phelan explained.

"I think it is part of the issue.

"I don't know who is involved any more and how far discussions have gone. It is possibly a frustrating thing from my point of view.

"It's an issue that everyone else wants sorting out, more than I do – the players and the staff."
