A short statement on the Preston North End club website has confirmed that the Championship club has accepted a bid for star forward Callum Robinson, who has been the subject of Premier League interest this summer.

Earlier this summer, Preston North End rebuffed claims that they had received a bid of £6 million for star forward Callum Robinson, with Premier League new boys Norwich City reportedly keen to bring him to Carrow Road this summer.

Now, it has been confirmed by Preston that they have accepted a bid from an unnamed Premier League club for Robinson. A club statement issued by PNE read:

“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.”

The 24-year-old scored 13 goals and provided four assists in 28 games across all competitions for Alex Neil’s side over the course of the 2018/19 campaign, despite missing out on a big chunk of the season through a hamstring injury.

The Preston number seven enjoyed three successful loan spells at Deepdale before making a permanent move to the Championship club in the summer of 2016, joining from Aston Villa, where he had been in the youth academy as a youngster.

In total, Robinson has played 160 times for Preston North End, scoring 41 goals and provided 21 assists along the way.

But, with a bid accepted and Robinson to negotiate terms and complete a medical at what could be his new club, it seems unlikely that the attacker will be adding to that total.
