West Brom have been given a huge boost with the news that forward Callum Robinson has been given the all-clear to play in the game against Burnley on Monday night.
The good news has come from John Percy in the Telegraph on Sunday night and he claims that Robinson will play after West Brom got permission from the government.
He had been isolating after being in contact with an ROI player who tested positive for Coronavirus on international duty.
Robinson has tested negative for Coronavirus.
This takes some of the pressure off Slaven Bilic who can now choose to start new signing Karlan Grant from the bench.
It’s news we were expecting after both Callum O’Dowda and John Egan played over the weekend after being in the same boat as Robinson.
Sheffield United tweeted that Egan had been cleared to play and captained Sheffield United in their 1-1 draw against Fulham on Sunday.
Three changes for the Blades.🔁
Max Lowe, Ollie Norwood & Oli McBurnie all come into the side. New signing Rhian Brewster takes his place on the bench.

Robinson has been playing as a striker for the Baggies this season but they now have Grant after a protracted transfer saga was completed late on in the domestic window.
Grant hasn’t played this season and could take time to get up to full fitness, so having Robinson available is a massive boost.
Tonight’s game gives West Brom a chance to put daylight between them and the dropzone.
Burnley are rock bottom and without a point in the Premier League so far.
