Hull City offer new contract to Derby County target

Hull City offer midfielder new contract

The England global has left the Tigers after the Rams activated the release clause in his contract.

Having spent twelve years away from Derby County, midfielder Tom Huddlestone is set for a sensational return to the club as his release clause with Hull City has been met. Huddlestone joined the Tigers from Tottenham in 2013 in a deal worth £5m.

The deal came about after Derby activated the player's release clause, with his now former club Hull making a late offer to try and persuade the star to stay at the KC stadium, however as reported by Sky Sports, the club were too late.

The 30-year-old midfielder made 23 Premier League starts last season as Hull were relegated to the Championship.

An academy graduate at Pride Park, Huddlestone is happy to be back at his old home after seeing his contract with the Tigers enter its final 12 months, with fresh terms not offered until Derby had made a move.

"But once I got wind of serious interest from Derby, and the manager wanting me to bring me back here, it was a no brainer".

The Tigers started their Premier League campaign last season with a threadbare squad that was never really fit for goal, and the doubts over Huddlestone's future compound fears that it could be a similarly story this time around, as they embark on the task of getting back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

"I feel this stated our intention to keep Tom at the club, but ultimately the decision to leave was down to Tom and his representatives".
