Liverpool have agreed a £10million deal with Hull City for left-back Andy Robertson.
The 23-year-old Scotland international will undergo a medical on Thursday and is set to become the Reds’ third signing of the summer. Liverpool will pay £8million up front with a further £2million to follow in add-ons.
Robertson won’t fly out to Hong Kong but will remain in the UK before linking up with his new team-mates ahead of next week’s training camp in Germany.
Robertson will compete with vice-captain James Milner for a starting spot. The Reds turned their attentions to the Glasgow-born defender after missing out on Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.
Robertson made 115 appearances for Hull following his £3million move from Dundee United in 2014.
Released by Celtic as a teenager, the attacking full-back launched his career at Queen’s Park before being snapped up by Dundee United. Three years ago Robertson was crowned the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year before moving south of the border.
Everybody makes mistakes, but not every mistake costs its victim masses of money.
In Scotland, a restaurant diner was shocked to realize that he’d accidentally tipped more than £1 million on a £100 meal. Oops.
The Evening Express reports that the massive transaction happened at an Indian restaurant in Inverurie, Scotland. After the diner finished his meal, he approached owner Abdul Wahid to settle his bill.
As Wahid tells the Express, when the diner input the tip amount in the restaurant’s credit card reader, the transaction didn’t go through. After phoning the diner’s bank and obtaining a confirmation code, the transaction was successful.
It wasn’t until the diner handed the card reader back to Wahid that the owner realized his customer’s £1,006,082.04 mistake.
All was not lost, however. After calling the bank to note his mistake, the customer got his money back and paid a more sensible amount.
