Andrew Robertson wants to put talk of a transfer to Burnley behind him and believes Hull have turned a corner under manager Marco Silva.

Deadline Day reports of a £10m move to Premier League rivals Burnley did not come to fruition, with Silva blocking any potential deal.

Robertson was part of Hull's defensive line that kept a clean sheet against Manchester United in Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Old Trafford, and the result has made the full-back optimistic of his side's chances of avoiding relegation under Silva after a turbulent couple of days.

"It is important for everyone, probably more so the manager than anyone else," Robertson said.

"I think for me as well it is important that the talk and all that just goes away. That's the way you want it, you just want to focus on playing and obviously probably the last 48 hours there has been a lot of talk.

"But I am glad I am here and I am glad I am working under this manager. I am glad he came out and showed his belief in me, which is always nice to hear.

"Long may it continue and I'll try and keep improving under him".

Robertson has been thoroughly impressed by the Portuguese, who is living up the expectations set by former Dundee United team-mate Ryan Gauld, having played under him at Sporting Lisbon.

"He said about how organised he is and how he goes through everything and that's right," Robertson said. "We go through absolutely everything and that's what we need.

"Obviously things weren't going right this season and he's came in and put his mark on it straightaway.

"He told us we'd have no days off and he's not been wrong about that so far! But the boys are happy going in every day. We're working under him and we're learning under him.

"I am sure he is learning from us because this is his first job in the Premier League, I am sure he is learning day by day. Hopefully by the end of it, we'll look back on it and say it's a successful thing."
