If the Tigers go down, who should be poached from their squad?

As the 2014-15 English Premier League season draws to a close, the relegation picture has started to clear up. This weekend, Burnley and Queens Park Rangers found out that they'd be playing their football in the Championship next year. Just one spot is open now, and there are still five teams still in contention for it. Since Hull City are currently in 18th, let's take a look at their squad and see if there's anyone worth buying.

Andrew Robertson: You may have read a recent piece we had on a rumour suggesting Villa were interested in the Hull man. The 21-year-old Scottish left back was just bought by the Tigers last summer, but after making 22 top flight appearances and two assists, it's clear he deserves to be playing at a high level. Even if Tim Sherwood has to pay in the region of £5 million for the defender, it would be great to add a young defender with the quality to start every match.

Jake Livermore: Here's another player that's been linked with Aston Villa that we've written about. A former Spurs man, Sherwood likely knows a bit about the 25-year-old. Livermore spent the 2013-14 season on loan at Hull before being purchased last summer, he's made 35 league appearances for the Tigers this year. Just one goal and one assist doesn't seem like a lot of production, but having a dependable player that could start or come off the bench means he could be a valuable asset for the Villans.

Abel Hernández: A third player that was purchased by Hull in last summer's transfer window, Hernández was the most expensive of the trio. He was the club's record signing when they paid a £10 million fee to Palermo, the Italian club at which he scored 36 times in 122 appearances. The Uruguayan hasn't exactly set the Premier League on fire with four goals in 23 appearances this season, but at 24 years old, he still has a lot of his career ahead of him.

Does anyone from Hull City's squad catch your eye as someone you'd like to see in claret and blue? Let us know in the comments!
