English football club Hull City on Thursday appointed Nigel Adkins as their new head coach.

"Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract," the club said in a statement.

"His success with Southampton, where he took the south coast club from League One to the Premier League with back-to-back promotions, Adkins also guided Scunthorpe United to promotion in 2007 and 2009, and has spells in charge of Reading and Sheffield United on his CV," the statement added.

The 52-year-old will oversee his first training session on Thursday and will take charge of the side for Saturday's home game against Brentford.
