Albion sign Livermore for undisclosed fee

Midfielder pens four-and-a-half-year contract

ALBION have completed the signing of Jake Livermore from Hull City for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old versatile midfielder has passed a medical and arrives at The Hawthorns on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Livermore, who spent two-and-a-half years at the KCOM Stadium, becomes the Club's first signing of the January transfer window.

Livermore is a graduate of Tottenham Hotspur's Academy and made a total of 58 first-team appearances for the north London outfit.

Having established himself in the Premier League and UEFA Europa League, he duly earned an international call-up for England's 2-1 friendly win over Italy in August 2012.

During his time at White Hart Lane, Livermore also enjoyed loan spells at MK Dons, Derby County, Peterborough United, Ipswich Town and Leeds United before first going on loan to Hull for the 2013/14 season.

His performances for the Tigers, including a start in the 2014 FA Cup final against Arsenal, led to a then club-record permanent move later that summer.

Following relegation from the top flight, Livermore helped City to immediate promotion from the Championship courtesy of a play-off final victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Livermore has made 20 Premier League starts for Hull this season, scoring one goal, and has impressed both in central midfield and also at centre-back when called upon.
