Hull City pick up Tottenham AND Everton reject – anyone think this is a good idea?

Hull City obviously recognise that they need to strengthen up their defence for the test ahead in the Premier League, but they may want to re-think their transfer targets. Hull are set to nab Spurs reject Anthony Gardner, the man who was shipped out to Everton, but couldn’t get a game there either!
Derby’s damp squib of a season last year served as a warning to all Premier League newcomers that if they didn’t buy wisely, they might “do a Derby” and end up relegated and stripped of all vestiges of pride and self-respect. All of which makes us wonder why Hull are after Anthony “Bambi” Gardner…

Centre-back Anthony Gardner is set to leave Tottenham for Premier League newcomers Hull, and he is determined to enjoy regular first-team football.

He said: “I had to think about the direction that my career was going in. I wasn’t playing at Tottenham and then didn’t get the chance on loan at Everton either. I needed to come out and play football.” (Independent)

Is Gardner really the type of defender Hull should be getting?
