Tigers now want to also add Englishman’s compatriot from the Lane as well this summer.
Newly promoted Premier League outfit Hull City have agreed to take promising young Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Jake Livermore on a season-long loan in the upcoming campaign, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Tigers head coach Steve Bruce has been desperately trying all summer long to add some much-needed experience to the centre of the park at the KC stadium for the new season, which gets under way this weekend when he takes his side on a daunting trip to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
And while also trying to persuade the north London club to part company with another fellow England international in the form of Tom Huddlestone, with the two teams having agreed a fee of £5.25m for the midfield player, Bruce has definitely managed to secure Livermore on loan for next season.
The 23-year-old has been at White Hart Lane for his whole career to date, joining the club in the summer of 2008, although he has spent more time out on loan in the intervening five-year period than he has actually playing for Spurs.
However, in the last two campaigns Livermore has featured in 56 matches in total in all competitions for the club, only to once again be now shipped out on loan.
