Hull move to beat Sparta Rotterdam for Liverpool midfielder Ben Woodburn

Hull City have moved for Liverpool midfielder Ben Woodburn.

The Liverpool Echo says Hull are in talks with Liverpool over the signing of Woodburn.

The League One side have expressed an interest in a loan deal for the 20-year-old, who spent the last campaign at Oxford United in the same division.

While negotiations are still at a formative stage, it is understood Hull are hopeful of completing the move for the Wales international.

Woodburn had been expected to make a temporary switch to Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam with Pep Lijnders a key driver in the move and Liverpool believing the Eredivisie would suit the player's style of play.

But with the transfer having not yet progressed, Hull believe they can now persuade the youngster to move to the KCOM Stadium.
