Tigers hope to beat a number of top-flight rivals to White Hart Lane duo’s signature.
Newly promoted Premier League outfit Hull City are interested in bringing the Tottenham Hotspur duo of Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore to the KC stadium this summer, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The Tigers head coach Steve Bruce is busy preparing for the new top-flight season and is understood to be determined to add some much-needed experience and creativity to the Hull midfield for the upcoming campaign.
And the former Manchester United skipper has earmarked the north London club’s English duo of Huddlestone and Livermore as being the ideal players to help keep his side in the Premier League next season.
However, Bruce also knows that he faces stiff competition for the pairs’ signature from a whole host of other top-flight clubs after Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas told Huddlestone that he was now surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane going forward, while the Portuguese is also said to be keen for Livermore to be sent out on loan next season to gain valuable first-team experience.
Tottenham value Huddlestone, who has scored 15 goals in 188 appearances for the club, at £5 million, while Livermore has scored one goal in his 58 matches for Tottenham, with Hull set to go head to head with West Ham United for the loan capture of the England international.
