I guess Bruce has always rated him. I don't, but there are worse Hull players I guess. Seems pretty uninspiring, one of those forgettable players who will come up in a trivia quiz one day.
We had an Egyptian goalkeeper.  Nigel Sphinx.

Randy lost a  pharaoh amount of money too.

And here was me thinking we needed a pyramid fielders.

I hope he's not a Luxor-y player, we have enough of those.
Well I couldn't cairo less.

Bruce seems to be attempting to assemble the definitive mid table Championship team.  Move over Leeds.  This is our turf.
I think he is assembling the next bomb squad and doing very well.

I strongly suspect he is coming as a RWB and back up winger. Per my post above, he seems to have struggled at right back and as you say we've already got about fifty right backs

Has he played much at right wing for Hull and Sunderland out of interest? Playing RB and RW is pretty different as you're playing a lot more with your back to goal and being a FB you have more space to run into etc.

To me it's one of those signings that will just be another average one and he'll fall out of favour when we change manager yet again and be difficult to shift. Hope I'm wrong of course.

I make that six right backs. Meanwhile we only have one player that ever scores, and he's injured.

Bruce is an imbecile.

I think he played RWB initially, then right wing in a 4231. I think he was right back last season but then they only had about 14 players.

He seems to have been best at RWB as far as I can tell

I really hope not but I can see our next manager in a few months making the usual tut tut sound regarding Bruce's signings in the same way he did when he got here and RDM before him.  Right before the new manager gives Richards and Gabby a "clean slate". Shudder.

Runs around, looks busy and lacks quality.
Typical Bruce type signing.
How many right sided wide players do we need?

Bruce gets his best from him and he's going to be a bargain.  Gets last season's version and might as well burn the money.

Yep but it's worth noting that last season's version was playing right back, which he clearly isn't suited to. He's an attacking style player.

For 1m I think it's potentially a good deal

It does leave us a little heavy on that side of the pitch though!
