Football | Callum Robinson makes permanent switch to West Brom
Republic of Ireland international Callum Robinson, has signed a five-year deal with West Bromwich Albion, the club that he spent the latter half of last season on loan to, from Sheffield United.
Robinson played a significant role in the club's promotion to the Premier League under the tutelage of Slaven Bilic.
Moving in the opposite direction, as part of the deal, is Oliver Burke, who links up with the Blades under a three-year deal. The Scottish international had spent loan spells away from the club since joining from RB Leipzig in 2017, namely with Alaves and Celtic.
Robinson scored three goals in 16 appearances, the most significant of those being in the 2-2 draw with QPR on the last day of the season, which ensured promotion for the midlands club.
Speaking to the clubs website the Irish attacker said:
"I can’t wait to get going.
“Discussions were taking place over the summer but these things take time. I’m thankful it has all been completed and I’m really happy to be back here.
“I really enjoyed my loan spell last season. The Club is a fantastic place to be. It has a real family feel to it. The players, the staff, the fans. Everybody.
“I was fortunate enough to help Albion win promotion to the Premier League and I’m so excited to have the chance to play for this Club in the Premier League.”
