Preston accept bid from Premier League club for Ireland forward Robinson
The 24-year-old looks set for a move to England’s top flight.

PRESTON NORTH END have accepted a bid from an unnamed Premier League club for Callum Robinson. 

The Championship outfit are currently on a pre-season training camp at Fota Island, having played Cork City in a friendly on Monday night. 

Ireland forward Robinson didn’t feature that night, and, according to a Preston statement released this afternoon, he has been given permission to leave Cork in order to discuss terms and undertake a medical ahead of a proposed transfer. 

An Aston Villa youth product, Robinson scored 13 goals for the Lilywhites last season — finishing their top scorer — despite missing four months due to a hamstring injury.
