Hull complete Livermore deal

Hull City have completed the permanent signing of Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore.

The 24-year-old, who spent last season on loan at the KC Stadium, has joined for an undisclosed club record fee which, it is understood, could eventually reach 8m.

Livermore, who signed a three-year deal, told the club's official website: "I thoroughly enjoyed my season here on loan and I firmly believe that this club will keep going from strength to strength.

"I made my feelings known that I wanted to come here permanently and once the two clubs had agreed the fee, it was very straightforward."

While on Humberside he made 41 appearances and helped the team reach their first ever FA Cup final.
