Report: West Ham have £7m bid rejected in search for Cresswell replacement

By Harvey Byrne

West Ham have had a £7million bid turned down by Hull for Scotland left-back Andrew Robertson, according to a report.

Sky Sports claim that the Tigers have rejected a bid from the east London club for their star man.

The Hammers are reportedly in the market for a left-back, after star-man Aaron Cresswell suffered a serious injury.

The 26-year-old injured his knee in a pre-season friendly against German side Karlsruher. The BBC have reported that the former Ipswich defender is out for up to four months.

Norwich duo Martin Olsson and Robbie Brady have been suggested as potential signings alongside Charlton youngster Morgan Fox, but Slaven Bilic has now made his move for the Hull man.

Robertson, 22, was instrumental in Hull’s promotion campaign last season, making 52 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and providing five assists from his left-back position.

The youngster also has experience in the Premier League and the nine-time Scotland international has totalled 36 appearances in England’s top-flight, where he has scored three goals and provided six assists.

The young star is entering the final year of his contract and with all of the turmoil currently going on at Hull, the youngster could be keen to leave the Yorkshire club.

In other West Ham transfer news, Hammers forward Enner Valencia is not on his way out of the club.
