Hull City have confirmed that they have agreed a fee with Tottenham Hotspur for the permanent transfer of one-time England midfielder Jake Livemore.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan at Hull, for whom he played 36 Premier League matches.

He is under contract at White Hart Lane until June 2016, but Spurs have accepted an undisclosed offer from the Tigers.

Livermore is now discussing personal terms with the Yorkshire club, who hope to officially complete his signing early next week.

Like Spurs, Hull will compete in the Europa League later this year.

Tottenham qualified by finishing sixth in the Premier League – 10 places above Hull.

Meanwhile, Hull booked their place in the continental competition by reaching the final of the FA Cup, where they were beaten 3-2 by Arsenal in extra time, after taking an early 2-0 lead at Wembley.

Livermore has made six Europa League appearances during his time at Spurs. He featured in both legs as Tottenham overcame Inter Milan on away goals in March 2013.

The Enfield-born man has represented England once at senior international level, appearing as a second-half substitute in a 2-1 win over Italy in August 2012.
