Following their releagtion to the Championship, Hull City could be set to lose a number of their key players as they prepare for life in England's second tier.

Following the club's announcement last week that they would be releasing six senior players ahead of the new season, reports in both the Daily Star and the Hull Daily Mail claim that club captain Curtis Davies could also be on his way.

Davies has not enjoyed a happy time recently at Hull having missed most of the second of the 2014-15 season, and according to reports, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Premier League new boys Watford could bid £3 million for the player.

Despite Davies dismissing speculation in January linking him with a move away, he could now look to relinquish the captaincy and move on having found chances hard to come by this season.

The Hull Daily Mail also revealed that Scottish left back Andrew Robertson and Welsh international James Chester could also be the subject of bids from Aston Villa, with a combined estimate of between £12-15m being rumoured for the pair.

However central defender Harry Maguire is set to return to the club, following a loan spell with Wigan Athletic.
