Former Sheffield United striker Jordan Robertson appears to be heading north of the border after rejecting a deal with Rotherham United.

Former Sheffield United striker Jordan Robertson appears to be heading north of the border after rejecting a deal with Rotherham United.

Robertson, who was on the periphery of the United first team when he was jailed last year, trained three days with the Millers, and upon hearing of a short-term deal until the end of the season in Scotland, is set to sign for St Johnstone.

The striker has spent time in Scotland before, during a successful loan spell with Dundee United, and now is set for a more permanent deal. An offer was set to be tabled by the Millers following a recommendation by skipper Ryan Cresswell, and boss Ronnie Moore was disappointed with the striker:

“He trained with us, then we offered him the chance to play in the reserves at York, but he refused because he’d been offered a deal until the end of the season. Perhaps if he’d held on he could have had an 18 month deal instead.

The former Blades is looking to get his career back on track following the recent circumstances.
