HULL CITY have broken their transfer record to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jake Livermore on a three-year deal.
The fee is undisclosed, but it is believed to have the potential to rise to £8m.
Livermore made 41 appearances and scored three goals as the Tigers finished 16th in the Barclays Premier League in 2013-14 and made an historic first-ever appearance in the FA Cup final.
He said: “I’m delighted to be joining Hull City on a permanent basis.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my season here on loan and I firmly believe that this club will keep on 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.”
Hull are now expected to switch their attentions towards the signing of Spurs central defender Michael Dawson.
