Sunderland want to sign Blackpool defender Clark Robertson on a free transfer, according to the Chronicle Live.

The 24-year-old is out of contract at the end of the month meaning he will become available on a free transfer. He has been the subject of interest over recent weeks from the Championship.

Sunderland are expected to be in for a busy couple of months as they look to bolster their squad ahead of their upcoming League One campaign. Their new manager, Jack Ross, is targeting defensive reinforcements at the moment and wants to sign his fellow Scotsman, Clark Robertson on a free transfer.

Robertson started his career in Scotland with Aberdeen and went onto play 68 games for them in the Scottish Premier league. He then made the move to England in June 2015 after being released by Aberdeen and joined Blackpool.

He could not prevent the Tangerines from being relegated to League Two in his first season at the club but helped them gain promotion back to the third tier at the first time of asking in the 2016/17 season under Gary Bowyer.

Robertson then had a solid campaign for Blackpool in League One as they comfortably stayed up. He is now believed to be weighing up his options as he looks for a fresh challenge for his career.

Sunderland would be a good club for him to sign for as they will be going for promotion next season.
