Tigers are hopeful of being able to convince Englishman to move to the north east.
Newly promoted Premier League outfit Hull City are still interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Tom Huddlestone this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Experienced Tigers head coach Steve Bruce is in desperate need of new faces at the KC stadium ahead of the upcoming Premier League season, which gets under way this weekend, with Hull facing the daunting prospect of travelling to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.
And the former Manchester United skipper is believed to still be targeting an audacious move for Tottenham’s some-time England international, who himself has been informed by head coach Andre Villas-Boas that he is surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane next season.
However, the problem for Bruce is trying to persuade the 26-year-old to make the move to the north east before the summer transfer window slams shut for business once and for all for the year on Sept 2.
Huddlestone has been at Spurs since January 2006, when the creative midfield player arrived in north London from Championship outfit Derby County.
But in the intervening seven-year period, the Englishman has found it hard to win a regular starting berth in the Tottenham midfield, registering 15 goals and 27 assists in his 188 games for the club.
