Antonee Robinson is ‘raring to go’ for Everton’s pre-season it seems.
Antonee Robinson has told Wigan Today that Everton boss Marco Silva has been in touch with him to offer constructive feedback on his game.
The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Wigan Athletic from Everton, making 26 Championship appearances.
The left-back, who has six caps for the United States, is at an age where he should be thinking about breaking into the Toffees’ first team – and he is.
Robinson revealed that Silva is pleased with his progress on loan, and is planning to impress the Portuguese manager during the summer in an effort to get chances next season.
He said: “The next goal for me is to kick on towards the Everton first team. I’ll be going back for pre-season fighting fit and raring to go.
“The manager’s been in touch with me, he keeps telling me what I need to work on and stuff. He’s been pleased with me for what I’ve done this season so I don’t see why he wouldn’t give me a chance next season.”
Robinson’s first-team prospects next season could hinge on Leighton Baines’s decision.
The veteran left-back has been offered a one-year extension and if he signs it, it could be difficult for Robinson, who would then be behind Baines and Lucas Digne.
Robinson, yet to make his Premier League debut, was born in Milton Keynes but made his full debut for the USA last May, having qualified through his New York-born father.
