Hull could bring second Dundee United star to Premier League

Hull City KC North Stand

After seeing how ex-Tannadice favourite Andrew Robertson has settled at the club, Steve Bruce could now be lining up a bid for Stuart Armstrong.

Dundee United youngster Stuart Armstrong could follow in the footsteps of his former Tannadice teammate Andrew Robertson with a move to Premier League side Hull City this January.

According to a report from the Daily Record, Tigers manager Steve Bruce is rumoured to be lining up a bid for the Scottish midfielder, with scouts from the KC Stadium club spotted at the team’s Friday night trip to Kilmarnock last weekend.

The 22-year-old has impressed since breaking into the Dundee United first-team back in 2010, and has already played over 100 games for Jackie McNamara’s team.

A former captain of the Scotland under-21 national team, Armstrong is the latest exciting young talent to emerge from Tannadice Park.

Arguably the most high-profile of these young players was Ryan Gauld, with the 18-year-old attacking midfielder who recently completed a summer switch to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.

Hull City regular Robertson was also brought to the Premier League from the Scottish club and his excellent form for the Tigers so far could be enough to convince Bruce to return to Dundee United come January.

The likes of Southampton, Burnley and even Celtic have all been linked with moves for Armstrong in the past, though the presence of Robertson at the club could give Hull the edge over their transfer rivals.

Young defender John Souttar, meanwhile, may also be in line for a Premier League move in the near future, having previously attracted interest from the likes of Everton.
