Aston Villa striker Callum Robinson was proud to make his Premier League debut in their stalemate with Southampton.

The 19-year-old forward admits his first taste of the big time has left him craving more.

He was quick to thank the Villa supporters for helping settle his debut nerves.

"It was good to get on the pitch after being on the bench five or six times," said Robinson to Villa's website. "The fans gave me a good reception when I came on and it meant a lot to me.

"Having being at the club since eight-years-old, it felt good. I want more of it now.

"It has given me more confidence. The gaffer gave me confidence when he had words in my ear just before I went on then when the fans reacted like that it was big for me.

"It helped me settle into the game. I was a little bit nervous but it helped me."
