Hull City have managed to secure the signing of Jake Livermore from Liverpool on a permanent deal, which will be massive news for the club. Despite a lot of backlash from the fans over the Hull city owner deciding to change the name of the club, there is positivity surrounding Hull city after they managed to bring in Livermore on a permanent deal. The midfielder was one of the impressive players for the club last season, as they reached the final of the FA Cup.
Even though Hull could not manage to hold onto a 2-0 advantage against Arsenal in the final, it will be remembered by Hull fans for a long time as one of the memorable moments in the history of the club. Hull lost the final 3-2 after a spirited comeback from Arsenal. The 24-year-old has previously stated that he would like to make the move permanent after enjoying a spell of first-team football at the club. At Liverpool, he struggled for first-team opportunities. It is understood that the Tigers have acquired his services for around £ 8 million.
He is likely to be the marquee signing for the club this summer and will be partnering Tom Huddlestone in the centre of midfield on a permanent basis. “I thoroughly enjoyed my season here on loan and I firmly believe that this club will keep 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,” said the player, who has signed a three-year contract with Hull. Last season, he made 41 appearances for the club. Steve Bruce has stated that he would like to strengthen the team in all areas of the pitch as they prepare for a second season in the top flight.
