Hull City face competition to sign Jake Livermore?

West Ham United and Stoke City emerge as possible rivals to Hull City in the race to sign Jake Livermore.

Hull City have been dealt a blow in their bid to sign Jake Livermore on a permanent deal with the news that two other Premier League clubs are interested in the midfielder.

Livermore joined Hull on loan from Tottenham Hotspur last summer, and his form is believed to have persuaded Steve Bruce to make a bid for him at the end of the season.

However, West Ham United and Stoke City are both keen to sign the 24-year-old as they look to add to their squads ahead of the next Premier League campaign.

According to The Mirror, Hull have been informed by Spurs that an offer of £6m would be enough to secure Livermore's services on a permanent basis.

Recent reports had suggested that current Spurs head coach Tim Sherwood would have been willing to give Livemore a chance to impress at White Hart Lane next season.
