Hull 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 signed for an undisclosed club record fee, which it is understood could eventually amount to £8million, on a three-year deal.
Livermore told Hull's official website, www.hullcitytigers.com: "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."
