Tottenham's Jake Livermore transfer hint

Steve Bruce

Tottenham's Jake Livermore, currently on loan to Hull City, has admitted he is open to making his loan move permanent

After Hull City’s 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jake Livermore who is currently on line at the Tigers, has admitted he’s open to making his loan deal permanent.

Following Tottenham’s influx of players during the summer, Livermore found himself competing for a starting place with up to six other players, including the likes of Lewis Holtby, Dembele, Sandro, Eriksen, Sigurdsson and Brazilian international Paulinho.

The chances of the 24-year-old Englishman playing regularly were minimal, and teaming up with ex-Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone at newly-promoted Hull City seemed too good an opportunity to miss.

Since making the loan move, Livermore has been impressive for Hull City, making 15 appearances and finding the net twice, including one Saturday against West Brom. He has been an important figure for Steve Bruce’s side, maintaining an average 82.9% pass success rate throughout the campaign.

Following his goal and strong performance Saturday, Livermore spoke of the chances of making his loan spell permanent: 'To be fair the gaffer has been great, getting forward is one of my strengths and he has given me freedom to use that', Livermore told Sky Sports.

'He has been great for me confidence wise. At the minute, I'm just taking it game-by-game and enjoying my time here. The players here, the staff here, the fans, everything is great', he continued.

'I'm just focusing on trying to improve. Whatever happens in January happens'.

With Hull City relatively comfortable in midtable at present, the move would be beneficial for both parties as the Tigers would hope to be able to offer Livermore regular Premier League football for the foreseeable future.
