West Brom boss Bilic hails impact of Sheffield Utd striker Robinson

West Brom boss Slaven Bilic is delighted with the impact of on-loan Sheffield United attacker Callum Robinson.

Robinson has helped the Baggies overcome a mini-slump with three wins in their last three league games.

Asked about the impact of the striker, Bilic replied: "Massive.

"He's a direct player, he's a winger, but he's a winger that is always in the box, that's what you want.

"He's a big asset for us."

Albion attempted to sign Robinson before United came in.

"He knows the league, he knows the players," added Bilic.

"He played in this league last season."
