Hull move for Huddlestone

Tom Huddlestone
Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal with Hull City for the sale of Tom Huddlestone.

The 26-year old midfielder will move to Hull City in a deal believed to be worth around £5.25m, a club record for The Tigers. Huddlestone has signed a three-year deal at the KC Stadium.

He will be joined by Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore, who will join Hull on a season-long loan.

Huddlestone joined Spurs from Derby County in 2005. He was initially loaned out to Wolverhampton Wanderers before making his Spurs debut on 31 January 2006 during a 0-1 away defeat at Fulham.

Huddlestone made 209 appearances during his 8 seasons playing for Spurs. He was an integral part of the Tottenham team which secured the club’s first ever qualification for the Champions League back in the 2009/10 season.

In the 2011/12 season Huddlestone only made 4 appearances after suffering an ankle injury. He underwent surgery in September 2011, but was forced to undergo a second operation on his ankle in February 2012. As a result he was ruled out for the rest of the season.

In July 2012 Huddlestone made his first appearance after recovering from his ankle problems in a second half substitute appearance during a pre-season friendly at Stevenage.

Huddlestone was linked with a loan move to Stoke City at the beginning of the 2012/13 season, but the deal fell through after the midfielder reportedly failed his medical.

The midfielder failed to secure a place in Spurs’ starting XI ahead of Sandro and Moussa Dembélé last season. Huddlestone made 20 league appearances, of which 9 as a substitute.
