Liverpool are set to offload Kevin Stewart to Hull City and could earn as much as £8 million from his sale, according to multiple sources.

Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool have travelled to Hong Kong for the Premier League Asia Trophy and will tonight take on Crystal Palace in their first game of the mini-tournament.

Kevin Stewart, however, will not take part as he left the tour to “hold talks with Hull City” and a move is expected to be completed soon.

The midfielder has been granted permission by Liverpool to discuss personal terms with Hull and to undergo a medical with the Championship side, according to James Pearce.

At 23 years of age, Stewart hasn’t shown that he is likely to fulfil his potential or that he will grow into a player capable of bringing success to Liverpool.

For comparison, Emre Can is also 23 years old and several months older than Stewart but has shown genuine indications that he will grow into a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.

These are the sort of players Liverpool need and want. Stewart simply doesn’t fit the bill and with Champions League football coming to Anfield, he doesn’t meet the grade expected of Europe’s up and coming midfielders.

Liverpool signed Stewart on a free transfer from Tottenham Hotspur back in 2014 and selling him on for £8 million looks to be respectable business.

While the 23-year-old is unlikely to light European football on fire, he should have a very decent career ahead of him if he continues to train well and avoids serious injuries.

  1. Shame there is not a reserve league like there used to be. I think there was a northern section and a southern one. With today’s squads some of the top teams could field impressive line ups, as well as giving the U23’s a decent competitive game.
