New Hull City boss Marco Silva has said it will take “something special” for the Tigers to part with West Ham target Robert Snodgrass.
The Hammers were ridiculed after details of their derisory £3.5million bid for the Scottish international were recently made public.
But, following Hull’s progression to the fourth round of the FA Cup, Silva made Hull’s stance on Snodgrass very clear.
“All I’m thinking at this moment is how to improve the team with the players,” he told BBC Humberside.
“In my mind it is never to sell the players, our players play more in our team because we need to improve our team.
“Snodgrass is a very good player he’s very, very important for us and we need him.”
Asked if the club would consider selling their main asset in January, Silva said: “No, no, no. Only if something special [is offered] but in this moment, no.”
