Robinson rejoins West Brom on a permanent deal having moved to The Hawthorns on loan for the second half of last season in January.

The 25-year-old, who appeared in the Republic of Ireland’s recent UEFA Nations League fixtures, scored three goals in 16 Championship appearances during that spell. The last of those came in West Brom’s 2-2 draw with QPR which clinched promotion on the final day of the season.
