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 BBC 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."
