Tom Huddlestone: Steve Bruce was the key to Hull move

The 26-year-old England international midfielder has signed a three-year contract with the Tigers after falling down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

"It's been a frustrating couple of years at Tottenham whether it be [because of] injuries or team selection. Hopefully I can come here, cement my place in the starting 11, and do well for the club," said Huddlestone.

"I had a chance to speak to Steve Bruce and I liked his ideas, his role for me within the team, and what he wants the team to do and the way he wants them to play.

"Once I'd spoken to him my mind was made up really.

"It was a very difficult decision [to leave Spurs]. Having been at Tottenham for eight years and with the club in the situation they are now, it was a very difficult decision to make, but one based on footballing reasons."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
