Liverpool closing on £10million Hull City defender

Liverpool are closing on their third signing of the summer, after having an offer for Hull City defender Andrew Robertson accepted.

The Reds have reportedly offered the Championship club a package which could reach £10million for the Scotland international, who has been given permission to leave his current club’s pre-season tour of Portugal to undergo the necessities to clinch a move to the red half of Merseyside.

Robertson was released by Celtic as a youngster but went on to play for Queens Park and Dundee United, before moving to Hull for £2.85million three years ago. The 23-year-old left fullback, who has 15 caps for his country, has made 115 appearances in all competitions for the Tigers.

Should he complete the move to Anfield he will become the third arrival of the summer, following Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke. But with UEFA Champions League football back on the agenda, supporters are expecting a few more arrivals before the window slams shut.

Meanwhile, Robertson isn’t the only Hull player to leave their pre-season preparations to complete a move elsewhere. Ahmed Elmohamady has returned to England to talk to Aston Villa, with manager Steve Bruce looking to once more work with a player he signed for the Tigers and also Sunderland.

It’s not all doom and gloom for the Championship club, though, as Fraizer Campbell looks set to return to the club after his release from Crystal Palace. The 29-year-old scored 15 goals in 34 matches for Hull whilst on loan in 2007-08, during his time under contract at Manchester United.
