Why Would Hull Sell Snodgrass?

Hull City's Robert Snodgrass celebrates after the gameWith a £10Million bid from Burnley accepted this morning, and West Ham expected to make an improved offer, it looks like Hull’s top goalscorer could leave the Humberside.

 Burnley can now approach Snodgrass to negotiate personal terms after their bid was accepted by the Hull board, something that Hull fans surely cannot be happy about. The midfielder has provided 10 goals in the league this season with 7 goals and 3 assists for the Tigers.

With a new manager, and the team looking a lot better on the pitch, it looks as though Hull could actually start to put up a fight in the league, so why would the men behind the scenes decide to sell possibly their best player? Marco Silva has even stated that he hoped that Snodgrass will stay for the crucial relegation fight.

The Scotland international would arguably make a welcome addition to any team outside the top 6 in the Premier League, and would certainly assist in Hull’s relegation scrap.

It will be interesting to see what Hull do with the money they get from this deal if it goes through, but at the moment it seems that the owners are quite happy to get relegated and get as much money as they can in the process.
