Gabriel Agbonlahor has sent a message to West Brom attacker Callum Robinson to say he is “proud” of the former Aston Villa youngster.

Robinson, 25, joined the Baggies on loan from Sheffield United in the January transfer window and has since played a huge role in the club’s bid for promotion by scoring two goals in eight Championship appearances.

The winger started his career at Aston Villa, earning five first-team appearances before he left to join Preston permanently in 2016.

During his time at Deepdale, Robinson made 160 appearances and scored 41 goals, proving himself to be one of the top attacking players in the Championship before Sheffield United swooped in and signed him in the summer for what was then a club-record fee.

Howver Robinson made just nine Premier League starts for the Blades before he was loaned out to the Baggies in the winter transfer window.

Ex-Aston Villa forward Agbonlahor has now taken to his personal Instagram account to show his admiration for Robinson’s development while also adding that he is proud of Villa Park midfielder Jack Grealish, who came through the academy with Robinson.

“My guys. Proud of you both,” said Agbonlahor before tagging Robinson and Grealish.

Robinson’s addition in January was huge for West Brom because they were crying out for more quality to be added to their left-flank while Grady Diangana was injured.

Diangana, 22, has struggled with injuries since mid-December but should be fit and ready to play once the Championship season gets back underway.

It will be very interesting to see with of the on-loan wingers Slaven Bilic opts to start.
