Liverpool close in on the signing of Championship defender with medical planned



According to Sky Sports News HQ, Andrew Robertson is set to undergo a medical ahead of his proposed move to Liverpool.

Liverpool are edging closer to completing the signing of Andrew Robertson from Hull City and a medical is planned for Thursday.

Andrew Robertson is expected to join the mass exodus of players leaving the KCOM Stadium this summer.

After manager Marco Silva joined Watford, a number of players have followed.

These include Tom Huddlestone and Curtis Davies (both to Derby County), Josh Tymon (to Stoke City), Ahmed Elmohamady (to Aston Villa) and Harry Maguire and Eldin Jakupovic (both to Leicester City).

Robertson is expected to be the next player to leave the club after their relegation from the Premier League last season.

The Scotland international is highly rated by the club and they were keen to keep their prize asset.

However, the prospect of playing for Liverpool is highly appealing for Andrew Robertson, who is looking to take the next step in his career.

The 23-year-old looks set to join Liverpool despite widespread interest in his signature.

Sky sources believe that a handful of Premier League clubs were chasing Robertson, as well as Dutch Eredivisie giants PSV Eindhoven and Portuguese heavyweights Sporting Lisbon.

Robertson fits the bill for Liverpool, who are looking to sign a new left-back rather than play James Milner there next season.

Hull fans – is this news a shame? Who can you get to replace Robertson? Let us know below…
