Hull City boss Steve Bruce has confirmed that he is hoping to sign on loan Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore on a permanent basis, as reported by Sky Sports.

Livermore has played 15 times already for the Premier League new boys this season and has relished the partnership with former Spurs team mate Tom Huddlestone who also moved to the KC Stadium this summer.

With Tottenham’s strength in depth evident in the midfield area after Andre Villas Boas spent big again this summer, Livermore is unlikely to be part of his plans should he return to White Hart Lane.

Bruce may make his move in January to show his faith in the midfielder who has one cap for England.

The 24 year old has already had six separate loan moves in his career and Bruce wants to add some consistency to Livermore’s game.

“I’d love to do a deal for Jake if it’s possible but he’s Tottenham’s player,” he added.

“I’ll have a conversation and the key to it is Spurs. Jake has now played 15 times for us this season and done very well for us.

“It’s in their corner because he’s their player and whether they are willing to sell is a big question.”
