Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has reportedly moved his close friend into his £2m home to repay the kindness shown to him during his tough childhood.
According to The Mirror, Alli classes Hickford as a brother figure, welcoming him into his mansion in an attempt to give something back to the family that helped him in the recent past.
A source is quoted by the paper as saying: "Dele's got a huge house - it made sense for Harry to move in. They're brothers and best friends, so it's the least he can do."
Alli, who also lives with lingerie model girlfriend Ruby Mae, recently cut off all contact with his mother after claiming that he felt no connection.
