According to the Daily Mail, Hull City are demanding a fee of £15m in order to sell left back Andrew Robertson, having rejected an offer of £7m from West Ham United.

The Tigers have endured a difficult summer, as they've struggled to bring new signings to the club, and have seen manager Steve Bruce walk away.

Now, they're having to fend off interest in one of their top players, as Sky Sports reported on Friday that West Ham United failed with a £7m bid for Andrew Robertson.

The Hammers have seen first-choice left back Aaron Cresswell ruled out for up to four months with knee ligament damage, and with no natural cover, manager Slaven Bilic will be hoping to get a new left back in before the transfer deadline next month.

Scot Robertson appears to be Bilic's top target, but with that £7m offer rejected, it remains to be seen whether the Hammers return with a second bid.

If they do, the Daily Mail claim that Hull City have set their asking price for Robertson - and it's a whopping £15m, more than double what West Ham offered for the player.

Robertson, 22, joined Hull from Dundee United back in the summer of 2014, and has become the club's first-choice left back ever since, making a huge 52 appearances for the Tigers last season, notching four goals in the process.

Clearly a talented full back with huge potential, Robertson looks to be a star in the making, but it seems unlikely that West Ham would be willing to spend £15m on the player, given Cresswell should be back before the end of 2015.
