STEVE BRUCE wants to raid his old foes Manchester City and throw goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon a lifeline with Hull.
His 11 City games have been in the cup competitions but he was left bitterly disappointed when he was dropped for the FA Cup Final against Wigan after being promised a start by former boss Roberto Mancini.
But Hull boss Bruce would love to take Pantilimon off City's hands for around £5million.
