Jamie Robson is ‘attracting interest’ from England according to Dundee United head coach Thomas Courts as Sunderland keep tabs on the left-back.

The 23-year-old is a product of the Tannadice academy system but is now wanted by two English League One clubs. Lincoln City are thought to have declared their interest while Sunderland are believed to be rivals for Robson, who may cost a six-figure fee.

Robson featured in Dundee United’s 2-0 defeat to Aberdeen on the opening weekend of the Scottish Premiership season. Courts said of speculation (DR): “There was some talk about Robson at the tail end of last week and there wasn’t a lot of detail because we were preparing for this game.

“He’s attracting interest and don’t know where we’re up to from club perspective but he was outstanding and he showed up well.

“It’s frustrating because when the window is open things don’t happen as quickly as you’d like. I’ve got total respect for the quality we have and I leave here feeling that. But within our dressing room there’s interest from other clubs. I still feel optimistic.”
