Callum Robinson has joined Preston North End on loan for a third time.

The Aston Villa front man put pen to paper on Tuesday on a loan deal for the rest of the season.

Robinson, 20, made 28 appearances for North End last season in two spells.

He first joined in September 2014, scoring five goals in 11 games, including a hat-trick against Havant and Waterlooville in the FA Cup.

Villa recalled him after two months, with him returning to Deepdale last February for a spell of 17 games in which he scored twice.

North End enquired about him again before the start of this campaign but Robinson chose to join Bristol City on loan.

However, that loan ended earlier this week, with him having made only seven appearances for the Robins.

The signing of Robinson is the third piece of incoming business done by North End since the transfer window opened, having brought in Sam Johnstone on loan from Manchester United and extended Adam Reach's loan from Middlesbrough.
