Preston North End have accepted an offer from a Premier League for winger Callum Robinson, the club has confirmed.
The Deepdale outfit did not name the top-flight side, but confirmed that Robinson had been allowed to leave the club’s Irish training camp to finalise terms on a deal.
Norwich had been credited with a reported interest in the 24-year-old earlier this window, but Preston denied they had received any bids for him at the time.
Robinson now looks set to depart the club after the most prolific season of his career last term, where he scored 13 goals in 28 appearances. He achieved this despite suffering a hamstring injury which ruled him out for 19 games.
Preston confirmed they had accepted a bid for the player via their Twitter account on Thursday afternoon:

I'm ok with this as long as the fee is a good one. He clearly had no intention of signing a new deal so no point losing him for nothing and keeping an unhappy player. I wish him all the best. Has been a cracking player for us.

Pathetic is all i will say! Can’t keep our assets then we will never make the premiership… again we crumble and snap up a pittance. Day ruined

Horrible news but he deserves a move. Club just need to make sure they re-invest it.
