Aston Villa’s Under-21 forward Callum Robinson has said that he will not get carried away after earning a promotion to the senior side for their recent games, and has insisted that he will continue working hard.

Having already made his first team debut back in September last year in the League Cup game against Tottenham Hotspur, the England Under-19 player was on the bench for the Villans during their league games against Chelsea, Stoke City, Manchester United and Fulham.

With 11 goals in 17 games for the youth team, the 19-year-old has impressed both Paul Lambert and development coach Gordon Cowans with his goalscoring abilities. And the player feels warming up at Old Trafford and being on the verge of making his English league debut has given him confidence. But he will remain grounded and focus on succeeding.

"That was a great experience to be on the bench at Old Trafford with 75,000 there", the Northampton-born striker told Aston Villa’s official site.


"But I would never act 'big-time' about it.

 "The manager says I am progressing well for my age.

"I know myself I am not ready to be starting. Obviously I'd love an opportunity to come on but that is down to him”, Robinson, who joined the Villa Park club as an eight-year-old, added.

"I can't get too carried away because I am still only 19, but the manager has said I'm doing well and is happy with the way I'm training so that gives me a lot of confidence."
