Liverpool among clubs chasing Hull's Josh Tymon - sources

Liverpool, Stoke, Watford and Aston Villa are chasing Hull City's England youth international Josh Tymon, sources close to Hull have told ESPN FC.

Hull are facing a battle to keep hold of Tymon in the wake of their relegation from the Premier League and the fact the player has yet to agree a professional contract at the KCOM Stadium.

Tymon is regarded as one of the best young talents in the country after impressing for Hull last season.

Tymon made 12 appearances in all competitions for Hull last season and he impressed when called upon.

The 18-year-old enhanced his growing reputation by helping England's under-20s win the Touloun Tournament in France this month.

Liverpool, Stoke, Watford and Villa are looking to strengthen their left-back options ahead of next season and they have been keeping tabs on Tymon.

Hull would be due a compensation fee should Tymon leave this summer as he is under the age of 24.
