Tigers boss pleased with loan star’s performances.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce admits he would like to keep on-loan midfielder Jake Livermore on a permanent deal from Tottenham, according to Sky Sports.
The 23-year-old is currently set to be with the Tigers for the 2013/14 season, but Hull could look to make his move a permanent one as soon as this January.
Livermore seems unlikely to gain a regular first-team place against plenty of competition at Spurs, and Bruce has been very happy with what he has provided his team so far.
“I would love to keep Jake if I could, so we’ll have to see if there is a deal to be done,” he said.
“I haven’t asked yet, but we shall do our utmost to see if we can make it permanent. At the moment, we are just happy to have him.”
Livermore has already been out on loan with six other clubs in his career so far.
