Liverpool have been running into major hurdles this transfer window in dealing with the likes of Energy Drink Leipzig and Southampton, but one team that seems content to deal with the Merseyside giants is Hull City. The recently relegated club will likely be sending leftback Andrew Robertson our way, and for a similar fee (in the neighborhood of £8million), they’ve agreed to take Kevin Stewart off our books.
The 23-year-old midfielder and Spurs academy product flew back to England from the Hong Kong tour today in order to negotiate personal terms, and if the two sides can reach an agreement, undergo a medical.
Stewart has been with Liverpool since arriving on a free from Tottenham three years ago. However, he has had difficulty breaking into the side this campaign, making just 9 total senior appearances for the club last season, and just 18 minutes of Premier League action. Even with European commitments on the horizon, it did not seem likely that Stewart would be any closer to the first team squad.
A move down to the Championship, with a side who will be looking to rebuild in order to get back to the Premier League, is probably best for Stewart who definitely needs a chance at regular minutes in order to kick on with his career.
