Steve Bruce offers Aaron Lennon Hull City lifeline

Aaron Lennon has been linked with a move to his home region of Yorkshire as Hull City manager, Steve Bruce, is lining up yet another raid at White Hart Lane, according to the Daily Mirror.

After previously swooping for Jake Livermore, Tom Huddlestone and Michael Dawson, Aaron Lennon would be keen on a move to be reunited with his former team mates at the KC Stadium after a lack of game time has upset the 27-year-old.

With the growth of width options under Mauricio Pochettino, Lennon is finding life in North London somewhat difficult in terms of getting game time for Spurs and has hinted that he could be willing to listen to offers from fellow Premier League clubs.

The first and only name to have cropped up so far is Hull City. His hometown in Leeds is just an hour down the road so living a little closer to his family may take the fancy of Lennon, not to mention the prospect of being reunited with a trio of former team mates.

Robert Snodgrass' horrible injury has ruled him out of the entire season since he picked up a knock on the opening game and with Tom Ince out on loan at Nottingham Forest, Steve Bruce's attacking options in terms of the wings are very limited at the moment.

So, in order to clear the first hurdle of landing the ex-England international, the Geordie boss must place a juicy £7 million on the table for negotiations to get underway.

A switch for the 27-year-old looks to be on the cards as manager, Mauricio Pochettino, and technical director Franco Baldini are scavenging to find clubs willing to snap up Andros Townsend and Aaron Lennon himself.

While a suitor for Townsend is yet to be found, Aaron Lennon will be delighted with the news of Hull's interest as he has only marked his 2014/15 playing career at Spurs with an insufficient six appearances.

Never the less, Spurs' longest serving current player has spent enough time on the pitch at White Hart Lane with a staggering 261 appearances for the Lilywhites.

It is thought that Lennon will have pricked the ears of Steve Bruce when he featured as a substitute in Tottenham's 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Sunday where the 27-year-old expressed his pacey prowess and attacking abilities; certainly something that Hull have lacked this season.
