Hull City boss Steve Bruce says the club is determined to build a British core to the squad.
Bruce says Hull's long-term success will very much depend on home-grown talent.
"All this nonsense that we're not producing players, sometimes they need a stage to play on," Bruce said. "We decided that we needed a few younger players because we haven't produced many.
"We've now got a nucleus of very good young players. I include Tom Ince and Harry Maguire in that. Jake Livermore's only 23, you think of him as a seasoned professional. It's his second season in the Premier League. We've got some good young players, which is important."
