Sheffield United boss, Chris Wilder, has refused to delve too deeply into what the future might hold for striker Callum Robinson, who is set to return to the club following a loan spell with West Brom.
Robinson signed for the Blades in the summer from Preston North End. However, he managed just the one solitary PL goal for Wilder’s men, before being allowed to leave for The Hawthorns in January.
And in fairness to Robinson, he has done well at Albion, helping the Baggies to win their place back in the Premier League.
Wilder, however, speaking ahead of the clash with Southampton this weekend, refused to speak too much about what the future might hold for the 25-year-old forward.
“I’m not going to talk about individual players really. Callum’s under contract with us”, Wilder said. (SUFC Official YouTube)
“Callum’s done great and I’m delighted for him. But there’s always decisions at this point of the season that clubs have to make. Callum is our player and we’ll deal with that accordingly”
Robinson scored three times for West Brom and provided two assists in his 16 appearances. He did score a crucial goal just a few days ago, too, to help the Baggies seal a return to the top-flight.
Robinson is one up for discussion, wouldn’t be a surprise to see him leave – Our View
It’s not a criticism of the striker but in the eyes of a lot of Blades, it seems that Robinson would be one who could be afforded to leave.
Especially, if United can recoup or improve on the fee they paid for him last summer, thought to be around £8m.
While he did little wrong before moving to Albion, he also did little to suggest he was really going to take off either. At 25, he needs to be getting regular games and it would, therefore, be little surprise to see a permanent move to the Hawthorns materialise.
David McGolrick, Billy Sharp, Oli McBurnie, and Lys Mousset are all ahead of the former Preston man in the pecking order. Robinson, then, could well decide the time is right to move on.
