West Ham target Robert Snodgrass wants to leave Hull City - Marco Silva

Hull City head coach Marco Silva has said winger Robert Snodgrass has made it clear he wants to leave the club.

Snodgrass, 29, is expected to join Premier League rivals West Ham, with whom he is currently in talks after the two clubs agreed a reported £10 million deal on Thursday.

Hull also accepted a similar offer from Burnley for the Scotland international, while Middlesbrough were also reported to have made a formal bid.

"There's nothing official at the moment," Silva told a news conference before Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round tie at Fulham.

Hull City's Robert Snodgrass celebrates after scoring.
Robert Snodgrass did not play for Hull against Manchester United on Thursday.

"He didn't play [against Manchester United in the EFL Cup] on Thursday and he didn't play also in the previous game at Stamford Bridge.

"He hasn't trained with the team for the last 12 days and hasn't been available to play.

"The player, when he talked with me and with the club, said he wanted to leave."

Snodgrass has been relegation-threatened Hull's outstanding player this season, scoring nine goals in all competitions.

"The player did not have one problem with me," Silva added. "When he was available he tried to work and do his best, but for the last 12 days he hasn't worked with me.

"When it is official, we need to find a solution to replace the player."

Silva's side beat United 2-1 on Thursday night but lost the semifinal tie 3-2 on aggregate.
