Andy Robertson has revealed that he came close to joining Stoke City instead of Liverpool.
The Scotland captain joined the Reds for £8m in 2017 following Hull City's relegation and, after a slow start, has become one of Jurgen Klopp's most important players.
Robertson, however, has revealed Stoke and their manager at the time, Mark Hughes, were keen to sign the left-back.
"Stoke were quite interested in me," Robertson said in an interview with YouTube channel Open Goal.
"Mark Hughes had 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 10 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, under Mark Hughes, they were playing good football. They had Erik Pieters; I wasn't sure if I was going in as back-up to him as he was flying that season."
