Report: Aston Villa likely to let 21-year-old Callum Robinson leave this summer

Aston Villa will reportedly allow forward Callum Robinson to leave the club this summer.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are likely to let young forward Callum Robinson leave when his contract expires this summer.

Villa are set for relegation to the Championship, given that they lie 15 points adrift of safety with just five games remaining, and big changes are coming.

Manager Remi Garde has already gone, and whilst a new manager will be arriving this summer, a host of players will be shown the door as the club attempt to start from scratch.

Surprisingly though, some of the club's young players could leave when their contracts expire this summer, with the Birmingham Mail assessing the futures of a host of players.

The report claims that the likes of Lewis Kinsella, Jerell Sellars and Riccardo Calder are all likely to leave this summer, as well as promising young forward Callum Robinson.

The 21-year-old is currently out on loan at Preston North End for the second time, as after hitting seven goals in 28 games for the Lilywhites last season, Robinson has added two goals in 12 games this term.

Robinson struggled out on loan at Bristol City earlier this season, but he has again shown flashes of what he can do with Preston, where he seems to enjoy playing under manager Simon Grayson.

Once tipped to be a future star for Villa, the former England Under-20 international is now expected to leave Villa Park this summer when his deal expires, in what must be a disappointment for Villa's youth staff who invested so much time in him.

Things could change of course, but Robinson looks set to leave - and given his loan spells at Deepdale, it would be little surprise to see him sign for Preston permanently at the end of the season.

Do you think Villa should let Robinson go or keep him?
