Tom Huddlestone says his goodbye to Hull as he joins Derby County
After having spent 4 seasons with Hull City, Tom Huddlestone has reached the end with the English Premier League club which recently suffered relegation after having finished at the 18th spot during the season of 2016-17.
Hull City will now have to compete in the English League Championship without Tom Huddlestone as he joined Derby County for a fee of €2 million on a 2 year long contract.
The English midfielder has been performing with Hull City since 2013 and during this time-lapse of 4 years, Huddlestone appears to have developed a close relationship with the fans, players, technical staff and just about everyone that plays any kind of role in the club and he made it clear just how impactful they have been for him after penning an emotional goodbye letter which read:
“I have to say a massive thank you for the past four years. It’s been a bumpy ride along the way but enjoyable none the less. From a haircut on the pitch, to an FA Cup final, to European games at the KC. All experiences we won’t forget. The fans have been excellent with me, you are what make a football club what it is.
“Without you HCAFC wouldn’t be a shadow of itself. And for that you should be proud.
“A thank you to the staff along the way also, from Steve Bruce to Leonid Slutsky each manager has had their own styles and I have learnt off each and every one of them. Medical staff, kitmen, chef, tea ladies all don’t realize what a great job you do and make it an enjoyable environment to work in.
“Thanks again. Good luck for the new season.”
That’s what Tom Huddlestone wrote as he announced his departure from Hull City which he has been part of for the past 4 years.
