Scottish international winger Robert Snodgrass could be heading to Burnley, with Hull reportedly accepting a £10 million bid.
Snodgrass has been in great form this season, despite Hull’s lowly position, scoring seven league goals in 20 games. That form has seen several clubs declare an interest in signing the winger this transfer window.
Hull boss Marco Silva left Snodgrass out of the team for the defeat at Chelsea this past weekend, as speculation of an imminent move continued. Having just sold Jake Livermore to West Bromwich Albion, The Tigers could now be about to cash in on another key player.
West Ham United have been chasing the 29-year-old, with three bids turned down already. They are apparently readying a fourth offer, which is nearer to Hull’s valuation. Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace have also shown an interest.
Sky Sports are this morning (Wednesday) reporting that Burnley are the first team to meet Hull’s £10m asking price. A bid has been accepted and the winger will now be free to discuss personal terms with the Lancashire club.
Obviously, it’s early stages in discussions and an accepted transfer bid doesn’t guarantee a player moving. If West Ham, or another team, come in with a similar offer, it could result in a tug-of-war for the player. Personal terms will need to be agreed and a medical passed before a deal is finalised.
However, it’s looking increasingly likely that Snodgrass’ future is away from the KCOM Stadium.
