Steve Bruce's Aston Villa get convincing win against Hull

James Chester of Aston Villa during the Sky Bet Championship Play Off Semi Final:Second Leg match between Aston Villa and Middlesbrough at Villa Park

Beating Middlesbrough to Bryan's signature will come as a major boost to Villa boss Steve Bruce as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of another push for promotion this season.

After their well-documented financial problems and the takeover by Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens it was probably a relief for Villa to be able to concentrate on football again.

Bruce is confident of keeping Grealish beyond the end of the transfer window but expects to face a fight for his services.

Evandro's speculative looping effort had given Hull the lead after just seven minutes but Tommy Elphick headed home unmarked to level just seven minutes later.

'It made flawless sense for me to return for the season ahead.

Conor Hourihane grazed the bar with a 25-yard free-kick after the break and with the visitors getting on top an error by David Marshall, the Hull goalkeeper, swung the game Villa's way.

Ahmed Elmohamady struck against his former club as Aston Villa responded to a summer of uncertainty with a 3-1 victory over Hull in their Championship opener at the KCOM Stadium.

David Marshall's poor kick out from his own goal allowed El Mohamady to swap passes with Conor Hourihane and the Egypt global picked out the bottom-left corner with a shot the goalkeeper should have saved.
