The 20-year-old left-back had also been linked with West Ham and West Brom, but Hull City beat off competition from their Premier League rivals, securing the youngster with an improved offer thought to be in the region of £3million.

United boss Jackie McNamara had been keen to retain Robertson, who had only been at Tannadice for a year, joining from amateur League Two side Queen’s Park last July.   

But he could not stand in the way of a switch to Hull, who are expected to finalise the deal next week.

Robertson has made 44 appearances for United in all competitions, scoring five goals, and has been capped twice for Scotland with his most recent appearance coming in the 2-2 draw against Nigeria in May.

He is to become Hull's latest summer signing and will join fellow recruits Jake Livermore, Thomas Ince and Robert Snodgrass.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
