Hammers Robertson hopes may go to Hull

robertsonWest Ham’s pursuit of a second left back may take them back to Dundee United’s Andy Robertson despite it looking as though their chances have gone to Hull.

Sources inside the Boleyn have been suggesting that we could return for the player despite City boss Steve Bruce being apparently ready to break the £2 million barrier for the player.

The Hammers have already had a £1.5 million bid turned down but remain keen on the player and a second left sided defender remains high on their priority list.

Having signed Aaron Cresswell from Ipswich they are keen to ensure they have adequate cover in the position and haven’t entirely ruled out a second move.

An Upton Park source told ClaretandHugh: “We are told he’s going to Hull but the club are very busy trying to bring players in – they are certainly not done in the transfer market.

“The club want to increase competition across the board and so far are very happy with the signings they  have made.

They are moving fast to get their business done as quickly as possible  Today has been another busy day”

  1. So where would that leave young Dan Potts? why even get him to sign a new one year contract if they’ve no intention of playing him?

    • It leaves him on his way to Colchester I reckon Ray. He’s been messed around and I reckon given 12 months (very unusual for one so young) in case they couldn’t find a left back!

  2. But now that we have one, surely he’d at least make a decent understudy? I thought they’d given him a year to emphasise that this would be a make or break season for him. I do wish the club would try just a bit harder with some of our youngsters although I’m encouraged by your other article about Chambers & Whitehead being part of the first team squad.
