Hull sign defender Gardner on loan from Spurs

Hull have signed defender Anthony Gardner on loan from Tottenham.

Gardner joins the Premier League newcomers to improve his prospects of first-team action.

The 27-year-old joined Tottenham from Port Vale in 2000 and has made 144 senior appearances.

Gardner told the Hull Daily Mail: 'Playing week-in and week-out is how you get your rhythm and that's what I'm striving to get back to. Coming to Hull and playing regularly can give me that and it will benefit my game and hopefully Hull City as well.

'I do feel like I've got a bit of a point to prove now. Not playing regularly and being at a big club where there's lots of competition, it got very frustrating.

'Spurs are a club where you've got internationals in every position and sometimes it's difficult to cement a place and play week-in and week-out. Over the last two years I haven't played regularly either through that or through fitness. I'm looking to stay fit and play games, that's my first port of call.'

Gardner had hoped a move to Everton in January last season would revive his fortunes, after falling down the order at Tottenham.

However the centre-back, who won one England cap in 2004, could not force his way into the Everton first team and left Goodison Park without making an appearance.

He will spend the first half of the new season at the KC Stadium following the agreement with Tottenham, who have Jonathan Woodgate, Ledley King and Michael Dawson competing for places in central defence.
