Hull City receive offers for defensive duo

Hull City have reportedly received formal offers for both Harry Maguire and Andy Roberton, according to Sky Sports.

The pair are just two of a handful of players that the club are resigned to losing this summer following the relegation to the Championship.

Speculation about the future of both players has been rife all summer, with Maguire linked with moves to Everton, Liverpool, Spurs, West Brom, Newcastle Stoke and Leicester, while Robertson has raised interest from Newcastle also, but Liverpool seem the club leading the race for his signature.

There has been no official word on which clubs have submitted the offers, but just yesterday it was reported that Leicester City were in the driving seat to sign the former Sheffield United man and England international hopeful Maguire.

The pair had been the shining lights in Hull’s 2016/17 campaign and both impressed massively under Marco Silva in the second-half of the season, seeing them pick up many admires across the Premier League.

Robertson and Maguire joined the club together back in 2014 from Dundee (£2.85 million) and Sheffield United  (£2.5 million) respectively. Scottish international Robertson recently featured for his home nation against England at Hampden Park.

Hull City have already lost Curtis Davies to Derby this transfer window, with Tom Huddlestone, Michael Dawson, Sam Clucas, Kamil Grosicki and Eldin Jakupovic all linked with moves away also.

New boss Leonid Slutsky is expected to arrive at the club later this week and already has a huge task on his hands to rebuild the squad before the 2017/18 Championship season gets underway in August.
