West Brom stand a chance of being able to sign Callum Robinson on a permanent basis from Sheffield United, according to Alan Nixon.
The Sun journalist reported on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday that it is “possible” that Albion will make a move to land the 25-year-old once his loan deal at The Hawthorns expires at the end of the season.
Nixon added that any permanent deal is likely to be an affordable fee for the Baggies, as Sheffield United’s demands will not be too steep.
Possible. Price not mad. https://t.co/1eP0ijuTLm

Robinson has been impressive for West Brom since he was signed on loan from the Blades in January to provide cover for the injured Grady Diangana.
On Saturday, even though Diangana had returned to full fitness, Robinson started on the left-wing ahead of the West Ham loanee and could retain that starting spot versus Brentford on Friday.
West Brom News pundit Kevin Phillips has urged Robinson to stay put at The Hawthorns once his loan deal expires, saying that the winger should try and become a “hero” at the Black Country club.
We would love to see that but if Sheffield United qualify for Europe next season, it is going to be very hard to get Robinson to consider joining Albion permanently.
Even so, he is yet to properly prove himself in the Premier League and Slaven Bilic might be in the market for a winger with more top-flight experience.
Of course, this all depends on West Brom being promoted but with Robinson on the flank, that seems likely.
