West Brom are reportedly close to signing Sheffield United striker Callum Robinson on loan for the rest of the season after terms were agreed with the attacker.
Football Insider claim that the 24-year-old striker has agreed to join the baggies for the second half of the Championship season just five months after joining Chris Wilder in the Premier League in the summer transfer window, with the former Preston North End attacker signing for a then club-record fee as reported by BBC Sport.
The Express and Star also report that Robinson is close to joining West Brom in the closing days of the January transfer window, with the Albion looking to add at least two attackers before the market shuts up shop until the summer with Slaven Bilic’s side so far being fairly inactive.
Will West Brom make another signing before the deadline?
Yes, Bilic knows we need signings
No, we've wasted too much time
West Brom have been actively looking for an attacker this month but have so far failed to lure any name to the Hawthorns despite plenty of rumours linking the Baggies to some big-name players, such as Jarrod Bowen and Che Adams, yet Robinson looks to be the first forward to join the club this month.
But as stats from Transfermarkt show, though, the former Championship star has had a poor start to life since joining Sheffield United last summer, with Robinson only managing one goal and two assists in 676 Premier League minutes this season, resulting in the striker hardly featuring for the Blades in what is turning out to be a sensational year for the club.
Robinson’s record has been woeful for Sheffield this season, but with West Brom in need of adding attackers and the Republic of Ireland striker proving he cans score in the Championship during his years with Preston, the 24-year-old could be a useful addition for the Baggies, who require extra firepower heading into the second half of the season.
