There has been a fresh update as teams like Aberdeen and Sunderland attempt to sign Clark Robertson ahead of the 2021/22 season (Independent).

The centre-back is out-of-contract following a spell at Rotherham United. Robertson has been linked with a return to Aberdeen, where he started his career, while Sunderland has also been touted as a potential landing spot.

There are more exotic clubs available too, with Polish side Slask Wroclaw and Israeli outfit Hapoel Jerusalem potential destinations.

But it’s Portsmouth who lead the race for the centre-back as they aim to fend off competition from across Europe in the defender. Robertson visited Aberdeen’s facilities last month as the Scottish Premiership season came to a close and it’s believed that Pittodrie manager Stephen Glass has made him a priority target.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen have tied Niall McGinn down to a new one-year deal. He joins the likes of Scotland international Declan Gallagher and former Celtic teammate Scott Brown in committing their futures to Pittodrie for next season.
