Hull City have managed to bring in Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone on a permanent move in a deal that could be make or break for the club in their fight for survival in the Premier league.
The club was relegated from the top division of English football a few seasons ago, but they have managed to come back under the management of Steve Bruce. They have come through the play-offs, which puts them at a disadvantageous position compared with the other two promoted clubs. As a result, they could be missing out on several signings.
The presence of Steve Bruce, though, has worked in favour of the club because they have been able to sign Huddlestone, who is a former England international. The 26-year-old also has many years of football left in him. He comes to the club at the peak of his powers. The midfielder is thought to have come to the club for a fee of around £ 5 million, while he will also be joined by Jake Livermore as well. Huddlestone said after completing the deal that he is excited to be at the club. He hopes to be on the first team on a regular basis.
“These are obviously very exciting times for the club and for me. Hopefully, I can come here, cement my place in the starting eleven and do well for the club. Hopefully, I can bring a bit of experience to the side. I’m fairly comfortable on the ball and have a good passing range which is probably the strongest part of my game,” said the midfielder to the official website of Hull City. The club recently changed their name from Hull City AFC to Hull City Tigers in a move that would be important for their promotional work in the Asian region.
