Evans enjoyed his time at Hull

Former Hull City midfielder Corry Evans said that he does not have any regrets for leaving the club.

He said that he had enjoyed his time at Hull City, and it was more the desire to play regular football that convinces him to leave the club.

He said that at that time he was quite young and that he wanted to have regular games to as to help his development. Indeed at that time, Corry Evans was only 22 years old, and he felt that playing regularly could help him progress, and this is why he left the club.

At that time Blackburn Rovers was interested in him, and he felt that he had a better chance of playing week in and week out if he made the move there. He admitted that the Hull City manager came to him at that time but only offered to play him as a substitute. He was not guaranteed any first team football and the club was willing to bring in some new players. Evans believed that it would become even more difficult for him to get a place in the team with the new players and this is what tempted him to seek a move away from the club. Read more »

Steve Bruce has admitted that left back Andrew Robertson could leave the club in the summer

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has admitted that left back Andrew Robertson could leave the club in the summer.

The highly rated left back is quoted by a number of clubs in the Premier league looking to take advantage of Hull’s relegation to the Championship. They are aware that Robertson is a great talent who is more than good enough to play in the top division and that he is likely to be unhappy at the prospect of playing in the Championship. This could see them get Robertson on a relatively cheap transfer fee, but Bruce is determined to sell him for a sizeable amount nonetheless.

The former Sunderland manager has valued the player at £ 30 million – the same as former Southampton left back Luke Shaw. The valuations for homegrown players like Robertson has shot up in recent years and it could go up once again after the Premier League revealed that they could tighten up the homegrown quota once again. After having signed him for just under £ 3 million, Hull City are ready to make a sizeable profit on their investment. Bruce has stated that Shaw had only limited Premier League experience but still brought in £ 30 million in transfer fees. He expects a similar return on Robertson. Read more »
