Andy Robertson says there were discussions regarding a move to Stoke before he decided to join Liverpool.
The Scotland captain, who has become a key member of Jurgen Klopp's team, sealed a move to the Anfield club for just £8m in the summer of 2017 after Hull relegated.
"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."
