Middlesbrough prospect signs new deal as striker earns international recognition
Teenage defender Jack Robinson has signed a new two-year deal at Middlesbrough.
The 19-year-old left-back has played regularly for Boro’s under-23s side in Premier League 2, Division 2, this season and was called up to the senior squad at the end of the campaign.
Robinson was in the matchday squad for the Championship fixtures against Rotherham, Sheffield Wednesday and Luton, before making his debut against Wycombe at the Riverside.
The defender came off the bench in the 89th minute, replacing Yannick Bolasie.
Robinson joined Boro aged 13 and has progressed through the club’s academy after joining on a scholarship during the summer of 2017.
There was also good news for another Boro youngster, as under-18 striker Calum Kavanagh joined up with the Republic of Ireland for a under-18/19 training camp in Loughborough on Monday.
The 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with Boro in September and has scored 16 goals in 23 appearances for the Teessiders’ under-18 side this season.
