Steve Bruce has held talks with Aston Villa over their vacant managerial position and hopes to hear something from the Championship side sooner rather than later.

The 55-year-old has been out of work since stepping down as Hull City boss ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

Villa are searching for a successor to Roberto Di Matteo – who was dismissed last Monday after 12 games in charge – and former Birmingham City boss Bruce is in the frame. 

“I have had a chat with them and that’s as far as it’s gone,” Bruce told Sky Sports.

“They did say they were in a process, which you have to respect. I am hoping that I will hear something this week.

“It would be a terrific job. I am sure everybody would agree, it’s one of the big clubs in this country.

“It needs a little bit of turning around at the moment, but they have got a huge support. It is a big club, so let’s hope I hear something this week.”

Villa sit 19th in the Championship table with 10 points from 11 games.
