Hull trying to sign Spurs duo

Laurence Griffiths

Steve Bruce wants both Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

Hull City's interest in Tom Huddlestone isn't a secret, and now neither is their desire to sign Jake Livermore.The Tigers want to sign a second Tottenham central midfielder, according to the Mirror, although the Livermore deal would only be a loan, while Huddlestone would be a permanent move.

The Tigers are one of several teams chasing Huddlestone, who is valued at £5 million. Whether Hull get him or he goes elsewhere remains to be seen, but he is almost certainly on the way out.

Livermore may still stay at White Hart Lane, but especially with the signing of Etienne Capoue, it would be almost impossible for him to see the field and Spurs would almost assuredly let him leave on loan. At 23 years old, Livermore is no longer a "kid" who is going to improve. Frankly, he's just not good enough for Tottenham as anything more than a squad player and it so happens that he's at one of Spurs' deepest positions.

A good season at a club like Hull may raise Livermore's value so Tottenham can sell him at a decent price and right now, that would be a win for the player and club. If Hull want him, they can have him.
