In unsurprising news, Preston want their goalscorer back and I can't blame them for trying - Callum Robinson will warm the bench at Villa instead of the back of the net at Preston. It will be extremely beneficial to get Robinson a few more games and recall him when we need him rather than waste him on the sidelines.
Robinson was having a good year on-loan to Preston North-End, scoring five times in eleven games before Paul Lambert took him back to Villa as a cover option. Callum hasn't played for Villa since being recalled and has opted for more experienced attackers including Andi Weimann and Charles N'Zogbia.
North-End boss Simon Grayson did say that "It's not his call, it's Villa's. We would love to have him back though".
Well Simon, we'd love to give him back to you for a bit, but he's 'needed for cover' and he will likely only see the field for 45 minutes against Blackpool. Oh wait, he's cup-tied. Nevermind.
