Sheffield United are edging closer to completing a deal for Preston North End forward Callum Robinson.

The newly-promoted Blades are eager to bolster their attacking options and have identified Robinson as player who can try and help them retain their Premier League status.

Reports have suggested an £8m fee has been agreed between the two clubs and now Preston have confirmed Robinson is in talks regarding a move to Bramall Lane this summer.

A statement released by North End said: ‘Preston North End can confirm they have accepted a bid from a Premier League club for forward Callum Robinson.

‘The player has been given permission to leave the team’s Irish training camp in order to discuss personal terms and undertake a medical ahead of a proposed move.

‘There will be no further comment from the club at this time.’
