Hull City are on the verge of completing the transfers of Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore from Tottenham Hotspur, as reported by BBC Sport.

The newly-promoted club, who renamed themselves Hull City Tigers earlier this month, are holding talks with 26-year-old Huddlestone, and successful talks would result in the midfielder completing a move for a fee of around £5m.

23-year-old Livermore, who made 19 appearances for Spurs last season, will join Hull City Tigers on a season-long loan.

The BBC reports that both Livermore and Huddlestone are about to have their medicals in the next 24 hours.

England international Huddlestone, has been struggling to secure a regular first-team place under Andre Villas-Boas, making only 21 appearances last season in all competitions for Spurs, despite spending eight seasons at White Hart Lane. 

He joined Tottenham in 2005 from Derby County and made a total of 209 appearances for the White Hart Lane outfit.

Central midfielder Livermore, who came through the Spurs academy, has previously spent loan spells at MK Dons, Derby, Peterborough, Ipswich and Leeds.

Last month, Hull City signed former Newcastle United goalkeeper Steve Harper on a one-year deal, and Scottish goalkeeper Allan McGregor from Besiktas. 

38-year-old Harper was released by the Magpies after 20 years with the club, while McGregor, 31, has been signed for a £1.5m fee, subject to international clearance. 

He had moved to Turkey in 2012, after making over 200 appearances for Rangers, and is currently the first-choice goalkeeper for the Scotland national team.
