Hull City star Andrew Robertson has left the Tigers' training camp in Portugal, according to a journalist's reports on Twitter, and could be on the verge of leaving the club for Liverpool.

The Tigers are currently 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.

Championship rivals Aston Villa have reportedly triggered the £1m release clause of Elmohamady, while Liverpool are the not-so-secret admirers of Robertson and are believed to be close to an £8m move to take the Scottish left back to Anfield this summer.

Like new Leicester City man Harry Maguire, Robertson impressed in the Premier League for the Tigers last season, despite their relegation, performing the role of left-wing-back with aplomb and is likely to remain in England's top flight for the 2017/18 campaign.

29-year-old Elmohamady meanwhile has been with Hull City on a permanent basis since joining the side in 2013, after impressing during a previous loan from Sunderland.

Hull's route back into the Premier League looks increasingly difficult as the club have already sold first team players Harry Maguire and Tom Huddlestone so far this summer, while goalkeeper Eldin Jakupović is close to joining Leicester City. Tigers fans will be desperate to see their side reinvest their transfer income ahead of the upcoming season.

Liverpool fans meanwhile will be pleased to have more depth at left back, but are still waiting for updates related to the future of more high-profile targets Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk.
