Hull set to sign Tottenham pair Huddlestone and Livermore

Premier League new boys Hull are close to a double midfield boost as Sky Sports reports Steve Bruce is to add Tottenham Hotspur pair Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone to the Tigers’ squad.

Huddlestone is to leave White Hart Lane on a permanent deal while Livermore would depart on a season-long loan. A fee of around £5m has been mooted covering both transfers, with the deals expected to be done before the end of the week subject to each player passing a medical.

Livermore has come through the ranks at Tottenham, making his first team debut in the 2009/10 season following loan spells at MK Dons and Crewe Alexandra. He has also played on loan for Peterborough, Ipswich Town and Leeds, and made his senior England debut in 2012 with a substitute appearance in a 1-0 win over Italy.

Huddlestone began his career at Derby County, moving to Spurs in 2005. He spent time on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers before establishing himself in the Tottenham team and winning England recognition, picking up four caps to date. He has played almost 200 times for Spurs, scoring 15 goals.
