Preston have rejected a second bid from an unnamed Premier League side for attacker Callum Robinson, The Lancashire Evening Post have reported.
Robinson was North End’s top scorer last season, scoring 13 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions, and it was previously reported by The Lancashire Evening Post that the Lancashire side had rebuffed an enquiry from an unnamed top flight side for the Republic of Ireland international.
It has now been reported that the same club who made the first enquiry have returned with a second offer, but that that bid has again fallen some way short of North End’s valuation of Robinson.
The striker is out of contract at Deepdale at the end of next season, and is expected to consider his options when he returns to Preston for pre-season training, which will be later than the rest of his teammates after he ended the season on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.
Although Bournemouth have previously been linked with a move for Robinson, it has previously been reported that they are not the side who are currently making enquiries about the 24-year-old.
This is worrying news for Preston.
With a second bid already coming in for Robinson, it seems as though the unnamed Premier League side are unlikely to give up on their interest in Robinson easily.
If they do continue to make their interest known, Robinson may well see his head turned in the next few weeks, particularly given he has never had the chance to compete in the Premier League before, and with Robinson out of contract next summer, North End may not be too keen on the idea of losing a prized asset for nothing in 12 months time.
