Callum Robinson has admitted that he hasn’t thought about joining West Brom permanently following his loan move to the club from Sheffield United.
Speaking to The Birmingham Mail, the Republic of Ireland international voiced his intentions to play in the Premier League after this season after making 16 appearances for the Blades this campaign since joining from Preston North End in the summer as stats from Transfermarkt show.
Despite making a good number of appearances for Sheffield United, only nine of these were starts in the XI, hence why Robinson was allowed to move to West Brom on loan for the remainder of the season, and although the 25-year-old attacker has impressed so far in his first two outings for the Championship leaders, the forward has seemingly ruled out a permanent move after this year.
Will Dara O'Shea become a first-team regular?
Robinson said: “We haven’t thought about that all. Coming here, with the position the club is in, it is all about football. It’s not about signings for the summer, it’s all about the next game. I am signed to Sheffield United, as it stands, I am going back there and hopefully playing in the Premier League next season. If anything changes, you know what football is like, within a day I was here on loan but that’s where it stands.”
The striker has only just begun his short career with West Brom but the attacker has seemingly done enough already to impress both Slaven Bilic and the supporters despite not registering a goal yet as stats from WhoScored show.
Robinson could be a potential difference-maker in West Brom’s goal to win promotion to the Premier League, and although the striker sounds keen to return to Sheffield United in the summer, the Irish attacker could be swayed for a permeant move to the Baggies should he play a crucial role for the club in the remaining few months of the season.
