The Club can confirm that Tom Huddlestone has joined Derby County after the Rams met the release clause in the midfielder's contract.
Tigers' Vice-Chairman Ehab Allam commented: "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. Whilst obviously disappointed by his decision we will continue to work on new signings and expect additions early next week."
We would like to wish Tom well for the future, and thank him for his efforts during his four years with the Club.
