Premier League newcomers Hull City have signed Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore from Tottenham.

Huddlestone 26 has joined in a three-year deal for a fee in the region of £5m while fellow midfielder Livermore 23 moves on a season-long loan.

England international Huddlestone spent eight seasons at White Hart Lane but struggled to secure a regular place under Andre Villas-Boas.

The former Derby youngster joined Spurs in 2005 and made 209 appearances.
