Liverpool Midfielder Leaves Pre-Season Camp to Complete Move to Hull in a Deal That Could Reach £8m
Liverpool midfielder Kevin Stewart has left the club's pre-season training camp to complete a move to Championship side Hull City.
The 23-year-old made his debut for the Reds in 2014 after joining from Tottenham, and has been out on loan to the likes of Cheltenham, Burton Albion and Swindon in a bid to further his development.
He has not been able to force his way into the Reds midfield under Brendan Rodgers or Jurgen Klopp, and looks set to leave the club this summer in search of regular first team football.
He left Liverpool's squad, who are currently on a tour of Asia for their pre-season, to finalise a deal with Hull, who will be playing their football in England's second tier following their relegation from the Premier League last season.

Times correspondent Paul Joyce claims the deal for Stewart could reach up to £8m, which would be a tidy sum for a player who has only made 20 appearances for the club.
Meanwhile, Liverpool continue their pursuit of RB Leipzig star Naby Keita, with several outlets saying that they have failed with a new bid of £66m.
