Hull City have added Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore to their squad.
Steve Bruce has been one of the busiest coaches in the Premier League this summer, as he prepares his options ahead of the Tigers’ return to the top-flight. The total number of arrivals at the KC Stadium now stands at ten, after it was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that Huddlestone and Livermore have been signed.
Huddlestone, who has four international caps for England, has spent the past eight years at Tottenham Hotspur, although he has often been plagued by injury and had fallen down the pecking order under Andre Villas-Boas. Hull are thought to have paid a club record-equalling £5million for the 26-year-old, who has penned a three-year deal.
And the former Derby County man will be joined by fellow Spurs midfielder Livermore, who has linked up with Bruce’s side on a season-long loan deal. The 23-year-old has developed through the ranks at White Hart Lane and has featured in 36 Premier League matches since debuting in 2008, but this will be his seventh loan spell away from the club.
George Boyd, Curtis Davies, Ahmed Elmohamady, Maynor Figueroa, Danny Graham, Steve Harper, Allan McGregor and Yannick Sagbo have already been signed by Hull, who begin their campaign with a daunting trip to Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea on Sunday.
