Kyle Naughton looking forward to reunion with ex-Tottenham teammates

The former Tottenham teammates will line up against each other when Kyle Naughton's Swansea City take on Tom Huddlestone's and Jake Livermore's Hull City in the Premier League this weekend.

Swansea City defender Kyle Naughton seems to be looking forward to a reunion against his old teammates from his day at Tottenham when the Swans take on Hull City this weekend.

The Hull City side has Jake Livermore, Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone in their ranks - who moved to the KC Stadium from White Hart Lane in recent years, and Naughton seems to be relishing the prospect of facing up to them again.

He's quoted in the South Wales Evening Post, saying: "I keep in touch with Jake quite a lot and speak to Tom and Michael now and again as well.

"I am really good friends with Jake — he is someone I mixed with outside of football as well as at the club.

"I will be having a bit of banter with him I'm sure and it will be nice to see him. Maybe I will give him a little kick after the game!

"All the best to them — they are good friends of mine so I hope they can stay up.

"They will want the win because they are fighting to stay up, but like them, we have goals. We want to get as many points as we can and we want to win this game."

As well as old friends meeting again, it carries huge significance for both sides for very different reasons.

During their time at Tottenham, the foursome will have had the expectation of challenging for a place in the Champions League on their shoulders - but it's different this time. 

Naughton is part of a Swansea side that has had a pretty productive season and is firmly on course to record their record Premier League points total. The Swans are on course for a high Premier League finish as they currently sit in eighth, but are just four points off equalling their tally in 2012 where they finished of 47 points. With eight games remaining, it's highly likely Garry Monk's men will accumulate enough to surpass that total.

For Huddlestone and Livermore, they need a good result in order to push themselves away from the relegation zone. The Tigers are sitting in 15th place and are just three points above the drop - so any kind of result that results in them picking up points will be welcome given the sides below them are running out of games to salvage their Premier League status.
