Hull boss Steve Bruce could work wonders with Aaron Lennon

Aaron Lennon

With Aaron Lennon tipped to leave Tottenham Hotspur for Hull City the Tigers' boss could work his magic yet again.

A report in the Mirror claims Hull City are targeting yet another Tottenham Hotspur player, this time in the form of Aaron Lennon.

The Tigers have recently brought Michael Dawson, Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone to the KC Stadium and all three have shone since making the move, so could Lennon experience a similar career renaissance?

Hull manager Steve Bruce certainly appears to have a tried-and-tested method when it comes to many of his transfers: Look for players Spurs do not want and show faith in them.

Dawson has impressed since he was deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane, while Livermore and Huddlestone have become midfield regulars, accruing 112 appearances for the Tigers between them.

Lennon burst on to the scene as a youngster at Leeds United and was expected to become one of the best players of his generation following his move to Tottenham. But despite blistering pace and considerable talent, things have not quite worked out like that for the 27-year-old.

Lennon may have made 359 appearances for Tottenham but he is at something of a cross-roads in his career and the latest report suggests he will be allowed to leave while Mauricio Pochettino keeps fellow wide-man Andros Townsend.

If true, given his age and his talent, there is no reason Bruce could not get Lennon back to his best just as he has with three other former Spurs stars.
