Robert Snodgrass could be edging closer towards the exit door at Hull
Livermore signed for the Baggies in a £10m deal, with fans fearing Snodgrass will follow the influential former England midfielder, after the Tigers' nine-goal top scorer went down with a mystery injury.
West Ham, Burnley, Middlesbrough and Newcastle are all interested in the £8m-rated Scotland international, who has been the subject of two failed bids from the Hammers after turning down the offer of a new contract.
Marco Silva admits the money West Brom offered for Jake Livermore was too good to turn down
After admitting his disappointment at seeing the end of Livermore's three-and-a-half years at the KCOM Stadium, Silva would go no further than to specify a "muscle" injury making Snodgrass a major doubt for Sunday's trip to Premier League leaders Chelsea, with the likely absence of the 29-year-old adding to speculation that his days at City are numbered.
Hull have brought in Norway full-back Omar Elabdellaoui from Silva's former club Olympiakos on loan until the end of the season, and the Portuguese said: "It is never good to lose important players and Livermore was really important for us.
"My focus is not on selling players, but we don't have a big budget and it was important to get the funds. Jake received a very good proposal, and so did the club, so the deal was closed. That's football and now we need to find a replacement."

Silva is braced for further interest in Snodgrass, and the added: "It's possible, always possible, but I'm not thinking about this situation."
Third-bottom Hull face a daunting set of league fixtures as they tackle Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United after the visit to Stamford Bridge, where they have never won in more than 111 years.
Silva is looking for a third victory from his fourth game in charge, and with Hull in the relegation zone only on goal difference, he added: "We have to be relaxed and try to play our football. I know if we keep the ball we can surprise a lot of the big teams."
