Liverpool Target Leaves Pre-Season Tour As Reds Push To Complete Signing

Andrew Robertson celebrates scoring the third goal for Hull

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig owner Dietrich Mateschitz revealed the club rejected a £66.3m offer for the Reds' priority target Naby Keita.

Andrew Robertson is set to join Liverpool.

Stewart signed a new five-year deal at Liverpool last November and played nine matches for the first team and 10 with the under-23 squad last season.

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

Today, Andy Robertson is closing-in on his move to Liverpool....

Stewart is now set to discuss terms with the Tigers, and is likely to make the move to replace Tom Huddlestone, who joined Derby County for £2 million at the end of last week.

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.

"But even though he's not going to be at Liverpool anymore he is leaving a legacy behind".

Robertson had a stellar season for Hull despite the club's relegation form the English top flight, starting 30 of Hull's 38 league games, scoring once and setting up a further two goals.

The 22-year-old Guinea worldwide is another Liverpool transfer target.

The Tigers are now preparing for two pre-season friendlies against Oxford City and Bristol Rovers and according to BBC Radio Humberside reporter David Burns' Twitter page, both Robertson and teammate Ahmed Elmohamady have left the camp ahead of schedule.

Both Hull and Leeds would be suitable destinations for the youngster, who could still have a long-term future under Klopp.

While he is expected to leave Anfield for £8m, a great piece of business by the Reds who signed him for free, one transfer valuation website has rated the midfielder at just £850,000.
