​Liverpool fullback Robertson: I almost joined Stoke from Hull

Liverpool fullback Andy Robertson has admitted that he almost a Stoke City player.

Robertson signed for Liverpool in 2017 after Hull City were relegated and has never looked back.

But he revealed that he came very close to a move to Stoke, as he did not feel a bigger team would come through with an offer.

Robertson said on Open Goal: "Stoke were quite interested in me.

"Mark Hughes liked me and I think there was a wee bit of chat with them.

"So I was thinking they were a really good option.

"I think they finished top ten that season and I was trying to get my head on [a move to] Stoke.

"I was thinking they were really keen and at that point Mark Hughes' [side] was playing good football and they had Erik Pieters.

"I wasn't sure if I was going in as backup to him as he was flying that season."
