Hull City are ready to launch a £10m bid to sign on-loan midfielder Jake Livermore permanently before the transfer window closes, according to The Mirror.
Livermore has impressed in the first half of the campaign with Hul since arriving from Spurs, netting two goals in 21 appearances in a midfield alongside former White Hart Lane team-mate Tom Huddlestone.
The 24-year-old was frozen out of the Spurs team following chairman Daniel Levy's spending spree in the summer, bringing in a wide range of midfielders that made the youngster's chances of first-team football on a regular basis slim to say the least.
He made a loan move to Hull City with the hope of experiencing first team football and progressing, both aims that have been achieved.
Since moving he has made a profound impact on the Hull City team, despite only counting a total of two goals.
Tigers boss Bruce has been on a spending spree of late having spend and is thought to be willing to break Hull's transfer record for a third time to sign the England international.
Bruce has already signed Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long this month, but it looks like he will have to up his offer to make Livermore his third signing on a permanent basis.
