Derby County have signed former Tottenham and England midfielder Tom Huddlestone from fellow Championship side Hull City in a deal worth £2M, as per Sky Sports.
Huddlestone, who made 31 league appearances for the Tigers last season as the club were relegated, has re-joined the club he left 12 years ago, with the midfielder signing a two-year contract with the Rams, according to Sky Sports.
The deal came about after Derby activated the player’s release clause, with his now former club Hull making a late offer to try and persuade the star to stay at the KC stadium, however as reported by Sky Sports, the club were too late.
Huddlestone came through the academy at Derby, making 88 appearances during his time at Pride Park before the midfielder left for Premier League Spurs in 2005.
With this signing of Huddlestone, as well as the confirmed signings of Curtis Davies and Andre Wisdom, it seems like the Rams are looking to build from the back this year as they seek a return to the promised land of the Premier League.
