With Tottenham’s midfield becoming even more crowded in the summer, it made sense for Jake Livermore to be playing his football elsewhere but there are signs that the 24 year old could make his loan deal to Hull a permanent one in the summer.

Jake has been speaking to the Daily Mail and is clearly happy with the way the switch has gone so far and firstly, he answered questions in regard to a possible return to White Hart Lane last month.

“I spoke to people at both clubs and just stressed that I wanted to stay here and play football,” Livermore said.

“I think within that, Tottenham allowed me to stay until the end of the season.”

The player went on to hint at a permanent deal but also claimed he was proving a point to his parent club.

“Long term, I love the squad here. I love everything around here,” he added.

“The gaffer’s great. I like the way we try to play football. It’s a big statement, the players he’s signed. To go and spend that money to bring in that sort of quality, it proves which way he wants the club to go.

“Personally I still feel like I’ve got a point to prove. I was in and out at Tottenham and it’s not a nice feeling when managers don’t come and talk to you and tell you what you’re doing wrong or why you don’t get the chance you feel you should be given.”

The summer will answer questions over Jake Livermore’s future but could he still have a part to play at White Hart Lane?





  1. We have enough midfielders who are slightly above average to restrict his averageness to Europa League and Cup games. He’s never going to be a starter in a team that’s looking to challenge top teams, and he’s not an improvement on anything we already have, apart from Bentaleb, though not for long.

  2. Fantastic attitude, he’s Spurs through and through. Sadly not good enough to be a starter in this side. Let him stay at hull and build a career there

  3. It wouldn’t harm us to keep him on loan for another season and see if he improves enough to be part of the spurs team. He needs to continue to feel that he needs to prove himself and work hard in training. Let’s hope he can be a solid midfielder for us in the long run.

  4. Agreed he’s not going to make it at Spurs, but a sad take on our management style that a player feels neglected. Our take on players should be that we are fully focussed on ensuring their improvement, both for the team and for themselves. It always amazes me that players are not helped to develop into better and more aware players, because it is such a waste of talent.

    • To be honest he’s not good enough, like holtby and to a lesser extent siggy. Decent squad players though. We just have to understand the standard at WHL has gone up. Capoue, Bentaleb, Mousa, Paulie, Erickson, Sandro can all play centrally. And are better players.

  5. Let him go he us the mist average player I have seen at spurs for years the last thing we need is him back in the team as deadwood would probably play him along side bentaleb zzzzzzzz

  6. Have to agree with previous comments that he may have his heart at Spurs, sadly no where good enough for our first team and would be best for him to try and get a permanent signing at Hull City. We have a host of other players fighting for 1st team starting positions and feel that he would be sitting on the bench for long periods if he came back.
