Hull City’s Andrew Robertson comments on transfer speculation

Villa Park 6

Andrew Robertson has been linked with a summer move to Aston Villa.

Speaking to the Hull Daily Mail, Andrew Robertson has tied his future down to Hull City, despite links with Premier League side Aston Villa.

The left-back said: “I’m not focusing on going anywhere. My focus is on getting Hull City back into the Premier League. That's all the boys are focused on. All I'm concentrating on is getting the club back up.”

Robertson was one of the best Hull players last term, impressing despite the club’s relegation to the Championship.

Able to play anywhere on the left, he was frequently deployed as both a left-back and left-wing-back, although the 21-year-old was also occasionally pushed up to an attacking position.

Aston Villa were linked with a move to sign the Scottish international immediately following Hull’s relegation to the second tier, as per the Sun, with Tim Sherwood keen on the player.

His young age and impressive ability make him an obvious target, whilst he has the Premier League experience widely considered an important trait to any player set for a move to the top flight.

Having proven himself in the top division, Robertson is far too good for the Championship, and Hull keeping him will do much for their promotion chances.

Many would expect that Robertson would push for a move if Villa formalised their interest, as the Midlands club would give him a route back into the top flight, but he does not sound keen on leaving Hull this summer.

And that could prove vital as Steve Bruce looks to get his Hull side back into the top flight this coming season.
