Report: West Brom prepare big-money January move for Hull City's Andrew Robertson

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly pursuing Hull City star Andrew Robertson.

According to The Sun, West Bromwich Albion are lining up a £7m January move to sign Hull City left back Andrew Robertson.

The Baggies strengthened their squad over the summer with the likes of Anders Lindegaard, James Chester, Jonny Evans, James McClean, Serge Gnabry, Rickie Lambert and Jose Salomon Rondon - but manager Tony Pulis is still looking for more reinforcements in January.

Left back has been a particular area of concern for Pulis, with winger Chris Brunt filling in there due to Sebastien Pocognoli's lack of success at The Hawthorns.

Now though, Pulis may have his top January target in mind, with The Sun reporting that West Brom are lining up a big £7m January move to sign Hull City's Andrew Robertson.

The Scotland international, 21, showed promise in the Premier League last season having arrived from Dundee United last summer, but Hull were relegated to the Championship - and a move back to the top flight could certainly appeal to Robertson.

A pacey full back who can put great quality in to the box, Robertson would be a smart signing for West Brom, even if the £7m fee may seem steep to some. With potential to get even better over the coming years, Robertson could solve West Brom's left back problem both now and in the future, making him well worth the money - if Pulis does pursue a deal.
