‘He’d have been a quality signing’ – Interesting Stoke City transfer news emerges



Stoke City manager Gary Rowett will have been gutted when he read that Liverpool full-back and Scotland captain Andy Robertson, nearly joined the Potters when he left Hull City back in 2017, according to reports in The Mirror.

Robertson left Hull City when they were relegated from the Premier League and was close to accepting an offer from Mark Hughes at Stoke, before Liverpool came in with an £8m offer for Robertson to join Jurgen Klopp’s side.

So where would Stoke be if Robertson had joined them?

We discuss…..

Alfie Burns

This is hard to answer, as Stoke’s problems last season went beyond a standout left-back.

Of course, he’d have been a quality signing and Robertson would’ve improved their chance of survival, but I’m not convinced he’d have made too much difference.

Jay Taylor

One man doesn’t make a team and for all his defensive ability, Stoke struggled all over the pitch so I would imagine they would be where they are now, even if they had the impressive Liverpool man.

Looking at it on face value, Andy Robertson made the right move with Stoke languishing in the second tier.

I don’t think he would have been able to save them and playing with players that aren’t as good as the ones the Anfield club have, he might not have improved as quickly as he has with the Premier League side.

George Dagless

Probably still in the Premier League.

However, I don’t think they’d be that much higher in the top flight, many of their players were starting to struggle.

Robertson may have left eventually anyway.
