Hull City have finally confirmed Mike Phelan as their new permanent head coach.
He took over as caretaker boss at the newly-promoted Premier League side in the summer when Steve Bruce left the role.
Hull won their season opener against champions Leicester but have lost four of their last six matches since then.
Next up for the Tigers is a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday.
The club have not confirmed how long Phelan's contract is.
"I'm very relieved. It's been a while in coming," said Phelan of the contract news.
