Ipswich become latest name linked with 27-year-old defender



Ipswich Town have become the latest club to be linked with centre-back Clark Robertson, as per a report from The Independent.

Robertson is now a free agent following his release from Rotherham United at the end of last season, following the Millers’ relegation from the Championship.

The 27-year-old is a man in demand this summer, with the likes of Portsmouth, Aberdeen and Sunderland having all been linked with Robertson in recent weeks.

Now according to this latest update, Ipswich – who finished ninth in League One last season – are also interested in a move for Robertson this summer.

There is also said to be interest in Robertson from Polish side Slack Wroclaw and Israeli outfit Hapoel Jerusalem this summer.

Despite that, it has been suggested that Portsmouth are still leading the race to complete the signing of Robertson at this moment in time.

Which club do these 21 former Ipswich Town players now play for?

Having joined Rotherham from Blackpool in 2018, Robertson made 69 appearances and scored five goals in an injury hit three-year spell with the Millers.

The Verdict

This could be a decent signing for Ipswich if they do manage to pull it off.

With James Wilson and Luke Chambers having left the club, and after missing out on a deal for Luton’s Sonny Bradley, the Tractor Boys do need to add some centre backs to their ranks this summer.

Given his experience in the Football League, and the fact that he is available on a free transfer, it does seem as though Robertson would be a useful candidate to fill that role.

However, it does still seem as though Ipswich are playing catch-up in this transfer battle, and it would be something of a statement of intent if they were to sneak in and snatch Robertson from under the noses of a club they will expect to compete with for promotion next season in the form of Portsmouth.
