In a sign the talks between the two clubs are on track, with claims a £10m fee has been agreed, Robertson has now jetted back from Hull's tour of Portugal.

Earlier on Wednesday, the East Yorkshire side announced the sale of goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic to Leicester City for an undisclosed fee.

Liverpool are closing in on a deal to sign Scotland global Robertson from Hull as they look to provide James Milner with added competition for the left back spot.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig's owner says the German club have rejected a 75m euro (£66m) bid for midfielder Naby Keita.

Robertson would become the third player to join the Reds this summer, after Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah, and is likely to come in and challenge James Milner for the role of first choice.

Effectively, we're offloading an unwanted, unneeded midfielder and securing a talented young left-back - at no extra cost.

Hull got relegated from the Premier League last season but Andrew Robertson was one of their key players.

Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has commented on Andrew Robertson's seemingly imminent move to Anfield, and he is clearly impressed by the 23-year-old.

He signed a five-year contract with Liverpool last November, but has found himself down the pecking order, and has seen interest from Premier League sides Stoke City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Burnley before opting for Hull.

According to BBC Radio Humberside's Mike White, Liverpool have accepted season-long loan offers from Hull, Leeds United and another, as yet unknown, club.
