We are creating collaboration sites with clients, which are all associated with a Hub Site (Let's name it Clients Hub Site). Of course, those sites are private, and we don't want one client accessing -nor even knowing about the existence- of another private site.
Therefore we don't want to list the private sites in the navigation bar at the Clients Hub Site, which in any case should be done manually.
The question is: Is there any function/application to be included in the Clients Hub Site contents which automatically shows an updated list of associated private sites?
This was available in the past when using the sub-sites feature (They were listed in the parent site contents).
May I insist on the limited access requirement: External users, members of the private groups/sites, shouldn't be aware of the existence of other groups/sites.
Thanks in advance for any help.

@Alan Marshall, thank you very much. Your solution is really elegant.
My steps to check the privacy were:
Minor issues found:
Now evevybody in the sales team can create a working group with the client and organise the site in the hub. NOTE: To allow the sites to be associated to the hub by any colleague, whenever creating the hub, the option of who's associating sites to the hub must be left blank.
Thanks again Alan.

@Alan Marshall @Miguel_B_M We're using the Sites web part to display the associated sites of a hub. However, it doesn't always display all the associated sites. I double checked the permissions. Even the sites where the end user is a site collection admin or a site owner doe't show up in the list. So, it's not a security trimming issue. Have you experienced a similar behavior?
I wonder if this web part is using search. Even after a couple of days, the results are the same. It shouldn't take more than that to update the search index.

@ErkanCh did you find out why the site was not listed?
I have just tested and it looks like a private team's site or private M365 group's site is not listed.
