EPL new boys Sheffield United signs 24-year-old in record deal
English Premier League new entrants, Sheffield United, has signed 24-year-old Callum Robinson in a club record deal.
The striker penned a four-year deal with the Blades for a substantial undisclosed fee from Preston North End.
Sheffield United revealed on Friday that they “smashed the club’s transfer record” to land the Irish international.
“Callum fits into our structure perfectly as we look to Championship players who we feel can be successful at Premier League level,” Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder told the club website.
“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.
Robinson is their third signing of the summer, following Luke Freeman and Phil Jagielka’s arrivals.
Sheffield United secured their automatic promotion the Premier League back in April after Leeds United and Aston Villa played out a 1-1 draw in a hugely controversial game.
