Hammers circle new summer targets


Andy_Robertson_(19596759769)The Hammers are continuing to circle Hull City’s  in anticipation of their relegation with Scotland international defender Andrew Robertson and teenager Josh Tymon attracting interest.

The Tigers are still three points from safety and set for squad reorganisation following the January departures of Robert Snodgrass and Jake Livermore.

The Irons have already been linked with defender Harry Maguire but 23 year old Robertson has been a long term target although they will have competition from Stoke.

Meanwhile, 17-year-old prospect Tymon is also on the Hammers agenda after impressing in 13 first-team appearances this season.

Tymon is understood to be  on an academy contract of just £160-a-week after failing to reach a professional deal at the KCOM Stadium

    Why on earth would we want players that can’t keep their team in the premier league? Hardly going to help us push for top 8/10 next year are they? Let’s spend some cash and just do a better job of it than last summer.

    Andrew Robertson is a very good fullback Lendl.I mean lets put it this way,if Swansea had gone down would it mean we wouldnt want Sigurdsson or Llorente because they couldnt keep their team up.
    If every player who got relegated with a team wasnt deemed good enough they would never be seen in the Premiership again.
    Sissoko got relegated with Newcastle,he then went on to play in the euros for France and earn a big money move to the spuds.Should no one have signed him because he didnt keep the toon up.
    You cant make an individual acountable and deciede they are pants because their club got relegated.

    Stick to the tennis Ivan lol

  • Michael Miller says:

    Robertson played left-back for Scotland last night – can he play right-back?

    The best right back I’ve seen this year was Nyom of West Brom, he’s definitely worth looking at but may be difficult to get.
