Callum Robinson signs first professional contract with Aston Villa

Young Aston Villa Academy product Callum Robinson has signed his first professional contract with the club, according to his Twitter account.

Callum Robinson has announced, via his Twitter account, that he has signed his first professional contract with Aston Villa. The young forward, born February 2 1995, has been with the Villa Academy since the start of his career. He has also been capped for England at the U17 level.

Like so many other talented Villa youngsters, Robinson has had the pleasure of playing in the NextGen tournament. He scored in last year's 4-0 group stage win over Fenerbahce, and was part of the squad that beat Chelsea this time around to lift the trophy. In fact, he even helped Villa get their first goal, when a panicked Chelsea fouled Robinson inside the area and Graham Burke converted the resulting penalty.

Talented youth from the Academy choosing to stick around and sign new contracts with the club? That's always a positive sign, in my book. The Villa youth system is certainly one of the best in England and supporters should be proud when we retain its products.
