Livermore is delighted to have extended his loan to season's end.
"I spoke to people at both clubs and just stressed that I wanted to stay here and play football," Livermore told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I think within that, Tottenham allowed me to stay until the end of the season.
"I think it was just something to do with Tottenham wanting to push Hull's arm. With what I said to Tottenham it became apparent it was the best for all three parties for me to stay."
