West Brom alerted to availability of key Hull City midfielder

Reports suggest that West Bromwich Albion are preparing a bid for Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

Media outlet HITC understand that The Baggies have been alerted to Huddlestone’s £2 million release clause following managerless Hull’s relegation to the Championship.

The former Derby, Wolves and Tottenham man joined the Tigers at the start of the 2013/14 following the club’s second promotion to the Premier League, for a fee of around £5.25 million. However, it’s now understood the former England international could leave for less than half of that sum despite being a key player in Hull’s squad.

The 30-year old, who is most well known for his powerful efforts on goal, has made nearly 500 career appearances to date, 161 of which have been for Hull City. He’s under contract until the end of the 2017/18 season but the Baggies may be looking to grant the midfielder a way back into the Premier League.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is understood to be keen on bringing Huddlestone to the club following the departure of Darren Fletcher to Stoke City last week.

The side from the Midlands have already raided City once this season, signing Jake Livermore for £10 million back in the January transfer window.

Curtis Davies became the first casualty of Hull City’s relegation this morning as Derby County announced his signing after activating a £500,000 release clause in the 32-year old’s contract.

Neither Huddlestone nor Davies were players that the club were expecting to lose in this transfer window; vice-chairman Ehab Allam is understood to be resigned to losing four key players including Sam Clucas and Harry Maguire.
