Hull sign Spurs’ Gardner on loan

Hull City have completed the loan signing of Tottenham defender Anthony Gardner until January.

The 27-year-old centre-back, who has been capped once by England, spent the latter part of last season on loan at Everton but failed to play for them.

Boss Phil Brown told Radio Humberside: “We’ve agreed terms of a loan with a view to a permanent deal.

“The original asking price was a little bit rich so we backed off, but the asking price has come down a wee bit.”

Meanwhile, Hull have ended their interest in Borussia Dortmund midfielder Delron Buckley.

The South African international trained with Hull for a fortnight recently and the club made a bid for him.

But Brown revealed: “They’ve refused the bid – that’s more or less dead in the water unless they come down in their valuation.”
