Hull sign Tom Huddlestone

Hull City have completed the signing of Tottenham duo Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

The signing of midfielder Huddlestone, 26, on a three-year contract was reported to break the newly-promoted side’s transfer record although this wasn’t confirmed.

Livermore, 23, joins the Tigers on a season-long loan and becomes Steve Bruce’s tenth signing of the summer.

Huddlestone told Hull’s official website:  "It's obviously very exciting times for the club, but for myself personally it's been a frustrating couple of years at Tottenham whether it be [because of] injuries or team selection. Hopefully I can come here, cement my place in the starting 11, and do well for the club.

"I know a few of the lads here already and they've only said good things about the manager and the club as a whole.

"I had a chance to speak to Steve Bruce and I liked his ideas, his role for me within the team, and what he wants the team to do and the way he wants them to play. Once I'd spoken to him my mind was made up really."

Huddlestone also revealed that "a few teams" had been interested in signing him, but that Hull were the only club to meet Tottenham’s valuation.

"There was a few teams interested and obviously Tottenham accepted the bid," he said. "It was a very difficult decision [to leave Spurs].

"Having been at Tottenham for eight years and with the club in the situation they are now, it was a very difficult decision to make, but one based on footballing reasons. With the club accepting the bid, then I knew where I stood."

Despite arriving so late in pre-season, Huddlestone is ready to be consdidered for the Premier League fixture against Chelsea on Sunday.

"I'll be ready to train tomorrow and then we'll see what the manager does for the game," he said.

"They don't really come much bigger than Chelsea away, with Jose Mourinho returning and everything else that goes with it."
