Sheffield Wednesday keen on Rotherham United defender

Rotherhamlad1983 - Own work

Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing Rotherham defender Clark Robertson but face competition from QPR as reported by Sky Sports. (Live Transfer Blog, 22/7/19, 11;47).

The twenty-five-year-old has two years left on his current deal after joining the Millers on a free transfer from Blackpool last summer. He made one hundred and thirty-seven appearances in three years at Bloomfield Road, helping the Tangerines win League Two promotion in 2017. Robertson also won the club’s Player of the Season award in his final season.

The former Scotland Under-21 international made twenty-eight Championship outings last term, and after taking a short time to settle, he established himself in the heart of the Millers defence with some tremendous displays but was unable to prevent the South Yorkshire outfit suffering relegation to League One.

His commanding performances have obviously not gone unnoticed, and the Millers may face a battle to keep hold of their man, especially if Robertson’s head is turned by the lure of a return to the second tier.

Our View

Some Millers fans are tipping the centre back to be the club’s new skipper next season, but Robertson has publicly stated his desire to further his international claims and may see a return to the Championship an attractive one.

With two clubs potentially interested Rotherham may be tempted to cash in if the money is right for a player they signed on a free transfer last summer.
