Newcastle are reportedly keen on bringing in Andrew Robertson from Hull City this summer.
According to Graeme Bailey, the Magpies are angling to sign the left-back as they look to bolster their defensive options heading into their first season back in the Premier League.

Robertson has been one of the Tigers’ better players throughout the course of the season and is sure to be high in demand this summer, given that Hull’s relegation back down to the Championship was confirmed on Sunday afternoon.
The Scotland international is being targeted by a number of clubs and as quoted, Leicester and Liverpool are both keen on a move for the 23-year-old defender.
However, the Magpies may be especially keen to land Robertson. They may be keen to find an upgrade for Paul Dummett heading into the top flight and will be keen to add more Premier League proven quality to the squad.
Robertson would not come cheaply but would undoubtedly add another excellent option to Rafa Benitez’s squad.
