Hull City Tigers (pause for sniggers) have agreed to sign Tottenham midfield pair Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore.

England international Huddlestone, aged 26, will move to the KC Stadium for £5m, while 23-year-old Livermore will join on a season-long loan.

Both players will undergo medicals tomorrow before completing their deals.

Huddlestone featured 21 times under Andre Villas Boas last season, while Livermore made 19 appearances.

Although both players got increased opportunities last term as a result of Spurs’ string of midfield injuries, neither are high up Villas Boas’ pecking order.

And the addition of the likes of Brazil international Paulinho means game-time was likely to be even more limited this season.
