Andrew Robertson celebrates scoring for Hull City
According to Sky Sports (live transfer thread, July 29th 2016 at 17:16), West Ham United have had a £7 million bid for Hull City’s Andrew Robertson rejected.
The Hammers are seemingly on the lookout for a new left-back this summer after regular first-teamer Aaron Cresswell suffered injury during pre-season and has been ruled out for up to six months.
Hull are currently manager-less after former boss Steve Bruce walked out this month, and the Tigers are heading in to their Premier League campaign with only 13 fit players after a lack of transfer activity.
With the situation at the KC Stadium looking fairly bleak at present, West Ham are seemingly looking to take advantage of their unrest by securing the services of the talented Robertson on the cheap.
The 22-year-old was widely regarded as one of the best left-backs in the Championship last term, starting 44 matches and contributing with an impressive three goals and four assists.
The Scotland international played a key role in the club’s promotion, scoring his side’s third late in injury time as Hull defeated Derby County 3-0 at the iPro Stadum in the semi-final playoff first-leg.
The Hammers have enjoyed success in recent years in regards to signing the Championship’s outstanding players, with Michail Antonio and Cresswell both previously featuring in the second tier.
Robertson has an abundance of quality and all the attributes needed to play in the Premier League.
