Huddlestone and Livermore swap Tottenham for Hull

The Spurs players have both moved north to join Hull City Tigers as they are to be known as Steve Bruce looks to beat the drop

Tottenham appear to be the busiest team in the transfer window at the moment, and when its not speculation of big money signings, or the departure of Gareth Bale that's on the agenda, then selling players seems to be a hot topic amongst spurs fans.

Today the North London club announced that Hull City have confirmed the signings of both Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

Huddlestone has joined the Tigers as they are now known, on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee, although it is thought that the club paid in the region of £5.25m for him, and manager Steve Bruce believes he will be a key player, if the newly promoted side are to remain in the top flight.

The midfielder who has been capped on four occasions by the national side has been short of chances for the Premier League side making only 143 appearances in 8 years at White Hart Lane.

In the other deal, 23-year-old Livermore, arrives at the KC stadium on a year-long loan and will join the squad along with Huddlestone on Thursday morning.

The deal is not an unusual one for Livermore who is thought of as a future star at White Hart Lane, and has previously been on loan at Peterborough, Ipswich Town, and Leeds United.
