NEWS: Livermore joins City permanently


Jake Livermore has joined Hull City from Tottenham Hotspur for £7m after his successful loan spell last season.

The 24 year old midfielder has signed a three year deal which could extend to four and has brought to an end a summer of speculation that he would come back to the KC Stadium on a long-term basis.

Livermore, who has one England cap, blossomed as a regular midfielder alongside his former Spurs team-mate Tom Huddlestone last season as City comfortably avoided relegation, reached the FA Cup final and qualified for Europe. He played 36 times in the Premier League – he only missed the games against his parent club – and scored three goals.

It is a piece of tremendous business by Steve Bruce, of course, and City can now boast a central midfield of recent international vintage with ambitions to win more caps for their country while wearing black and amber.

    Much needed signing …however it only preserves the status quo, so must push on now to improve the squad. The prices quoted for players are eye watering and seem to go up with each report!! How much now for Snodgrass?!
    Not sure about Dawson as he said London still appeals and he’s slowed a lot IMO…but Euro experience would be good. Bertrand left back season loan? Bendtner…? How much is in the budget?
    Wrt World Cup/England….Huddlestone, Livermore and Davies would all have added to the squad and overall performance IMO. RH messed up in tactics, choices, etc…worst result since when? How does he keep his job? He should resign!
    Oh, and welcome home Jake! Nice to see…Onward & Upward! COYH!
