Rotherham United defender Clark Robertson is set to travel to Aberdeen in the next week ahead of a potential move back to his former club (BBC).
The 27-year-old will link up with Stephen Glass this week or at the start of next week for some training and a look around the facilities at Aberdeen’s training centre and Pittodrie stadium. He is out of contract at Rotherham United, who were relegated from the English Championship last weekend. Robertson made 16 appearances this term.
He could become Glass’ third signing as Aberdeen manager after Celtic captain Scott Brown and Motherwell captain Declan Gallagher. Robertson started his career at Aberdeen, making 68 appearances before moving to Blackpool in 2015. He has been with Rotherham United since 2018.
Aberdeen will finish fourth in the Scottish Premiership this season after a 1-0 defeat to Hibs at Pittodrie, manager Glass saying: “This period since coming in in April has given us the chance to see exactly what we would like to change over the summer and there will be comings and goings, obviously.
“It’s been hugely valuable for us and for the group to have this time. The group looks like it’s got goals in it, we carried a threat, we were dominant, but you do have to stick the ball in the net. It’s quality that wins you games, we’ve got the players that can do that and we’ll add to it.
“We know what we would like to do in terms of bringing players in but obviously we are talking about players at other clubs and we will have to see how that plays out. We would like to do our business as quickly as we can but that’s not always possible.”
