Aston Villa youngster Callum Robinson tweets ahead of pre-season training

Aston Villa youngster Callum Robinson is looking forward to pre-season training.

Aston Villa forward Callum Robinson has taken to Twitter to discuss his hopes for the season ahead of pre-season training.

Robinson, 20, has emerged through the ranks at Villa, but spent the majority of last season on loan at Preston North End, spending two separate loan spells with the Lilywhites.

Robinson impressed during his time at Deepdale, scoring seven goals in 28 games as he played a valuable role in Preston's promotion back to the Championship.

Now, Robinson has returned to Villa Park, and is gearing up for pre-season training under Tim Sherwood for the first time having caught the eye with Preston.

Robinson took to Twitter to discuss pre-season training, and admitted that he's looking forward to the season - and plans to work hard in order to make an impression on Sherwood.

Can Robinson make an impact next season?

Robinson's loan spells at Preston stand him in good stead for this summer, having learned his trade in a physical division alongside experienced forwards such as Kevin Davies and Jermaine Beckford.

Robinson was mostly deployed by Preston boss Simon Grayson as a left winger, where he would cut inside on his right foot and try to create or score goals.

The England Under-20 star has a sharp turn of pace and trickery on the ball, and whilst he may still be outmuscled in the Premier League, he could certainly emulate Jack Grealish in making the step up to the Villa first team under Sherwood, who has a history of developing young players - and Robinson could be the next in that line, if given an opportunity in Villa's goal-shy attack.
