Former Wanderers defender Antonee Robinson has been linked with a switch to high-flying Newcastle.

Robinson had a spell on loan at Bolton from Everton during the 2017/18 campaign, making 34 appearances in total. He featured as the Whites overcame Nottingham Forest on the final day to avoid relegation from the Championship.

The full-back, who also had a stint at Wigan after leaving the UniBol, joined Fulham in the summer of 2020 and helped the London outfit secure promotion back to the Premier League last season under Marco Silva.

He has played 13 times in the top flight this term and has also caught the eye while representing the United States in the World Cup.

The 25-year-old played 90 minutes as Gregg Berhalter’s side held England to a goalless draw during the group stage. Ex-Bolton defender Tim Ream also lined up against Gareth Southgate’s men.

Robinson was named in the starting line-up at the weekend as the US were knocked out by the Netherlands in the round of 16 following a 3-1 defeat in Doha.

Reports claim Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is in the market for a new left-back, with Dan Burn currently filling the role.

The Magpies currently sit third in the Premier League table and have gone from strength to strength since Howe took charge at St James’ Park back in November 2021. The appointment came a few weeks after the North East club was taken over by a Saudi-led consortium.

Inter Milan are also said to be interested in the pacy defender, who has 18 months left on his current deal.

The Italian giants, who are fifth in the Serie A table, were previously linked with a £20million swoop for the former Bolton man.

Tottenham defender Matt Doherty recently labelled Robinson as a ‘player to watch’ following his performance in the 1-0 victory against Iran.

“Not an easy one today, but I’m going to go with Antonee Robinson of the USA," he said. Left-back, athletic, fast. He looks a good player."
