Sheffield United have signed Callum Robinson for a ‘substantial undisclosed fee’ from Preston

‘The Blades have paid a substantial undisclosed fee to land Republic of Ireland international Callum Robinson from Preston North End.

‘The 24-year-old forward has penned a four-year deal at Bramall Lane and becomes boss Chris Wilder’s third signing of the summer, following Luke Freeman and Phil Jagielka into S2.’

A product of Aston Villa’s youth set-up, Northampton-born Robinson has flown straight to Portugal to meet his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp.

Manager Chris Wilder said: ‘Callum fits into our structure perfectly as we look to Championship players who we feel can be successful at Premier League level.

‘Callum is someone who was on our radar a number of years ago and he has progressed how we thought he would and hopefully there is plenty more to come.

‘I feel Callum is a great age and what we have paid represents great value in the current market.’
