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.
