English Championship club Blackburn Rovers and League One Sunderland are said to be after the signature of Aberdeen youngster Ethan Ross. (Chronicle).

The 19-year-old is thought to be on the radar of Sunderland after turning down a new contract at Aberdeen. Ross signed a two-year deal at the Scottish Premiership side in 2019 and now manager Stephen Glass faces a fight to keep the playmaker.

Aberdeen are aware of interest from the likes of Blackburn and Sunderland but Glass hopes to convince Ross in order to keep him in Scotland. While only featuring 12 times for Aberdeen, Ross really impressed those at Pittodrie with a loan spell at Scottish Championship side Raith Rovers.

He made 15 appearances, scoring twice and adding three assists as John McGlynn’s side secured an impressive promotion play-off spot in the 2020/21 Scottish Championship season, coming after winning League One the year previous.
