Callum Robinson looks set for a move to the English top flight, after Preston North End confirmed that they have accepted a bid from a Premier League club for the player.
The Republic of Ireland international has been strongly linked with a move away from Deepdale over the past few months, with a number of Premier League clubs rumoured to be interested. With the player entering the final year of his contract, Preston were fearful of losing him for nothing next summer.
Those fears have forced the club into action, who this afternoon confirmed they have accepted a bid from an unknown club for the forward.
Preston North End can confirm they have accepted a bid from a Premier League club for forward Callum Robinson.
The player has been given permission to leave the team’s Irish training camp in order to discuss personal terms and undertake a medical ahead of a proposed move.
There will be no further comment from the club at this time.
While the identity of the buying club has not yet been confirmed, we do have some idea as to where he may end up. Norwich City have been the most strongly linked, as they seek to beef up their squad for their return to the Premier League.
Sheffield United are also possibility, with manager Chris Wilder hinting that they were close to a couple of deals in recent days. Burnley are another side credited with an interest.
This will be an exciting move for the player, who was in amazing form in the Championship last season. Despite missing a large portion of the campaign due to injury, he still managed to grab 12 goals and three assists in 24 league starts.
At 24-years old, he is also set to be an important player for Ireland in the coming years. He has impressed during his brief foray onto the international stage, most recently in the win over Gibraltar.
