Mike Phelan still unsure over his future at Hull City.
Tigers (4/5 – To be relegated) caretaker manager Phelan says he has been left in the dark over a potential takeover at the club, as he looks for his future to be resolved as soon as possible.
The former Manchester United assistant was placed in caretaker charge over the summer following the departure of Steve Bruce after he won promotion to the Premier League.
Phelan has done a remarkable job in helping the Tigers to make a positive start this season, despite problems both on and off the field.
The Allam family, who own Hull City, have been in talks with a number of parties as they look to push through a sale of the club.
Reports claimed that discussions have recently taken place with Chinese and American investors, although it’s understood an agreement is yet to be reached on a purchase figure.
The 54-year-old is hoping the issues at board level can be ironed out sooner rather than later as he looks for some security in his role.
The interim boss has been in talks over a permanent deal but admitted that the situation continues to change on almost a daily basis.
Phelan said: “I don’t know whether there is a takeover, if it is moving forward or further away. I had a coffee and cake on Tuesday (with Ehab Allam), which was really positive, but then a couple of days later things change.
“It is something that has to be sorted out, and it will be sorted out.”
The Tigers have picked up seven points from their opening six league outings but will need to put in a strong performance on Saturday when they host Chelsea (Match betting – 13/2 Hull, 7/2 draw, 1/2 Chelsea) if they want to add to their tally.
Odds subject to change.
