It had been widely reported at the beginning of the week that Jake Livermore would complete his transfer from Spurs to Hull and that deal has now been confirmed – or at least it has been by the Tigers.
At the time of writing there is no official word from Spurs but the Hull announcement seals the deal and it brings to an end Livermore’s six years as a professional at White Hart Lane. The fee is undisclosed but it’s a club record for City so could be approaching somewhere in the region of £8m.
At the start of last season, an influx of seven new signings made the player’s path into the first team even harder to unblock and after an impressive spell under Steve Bruce, this move seemed a logical one for all concerned.
We wish Jake all the best as he makes the move.
