Tom Huddlestone has left Hull City to join Derby County for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £2m.

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

The 30-year-old former Derby trainee has signed a two-year contract, with the option of a further year.

He had one season left on his deal with Hull, who he joined from Tottenham in 2013 before making 112 league starts for the Tigers.

Huddlestone issued a statement on twitter thanking Hull City fans:

Speaking about the move, Hull vice-chairman Ehab Allam told the club's website: "We recently met with Tom's representatives, prior to receiving the offer from Derby to discuss a new longer-term deal on improved terms."

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. We would like to wish Tom well for the future, and thank him for his efforts.
