It's to be hoped Jack Robinson has a big suitcase!
Huddersfield Town’s new on-loan left-back has done some travelling over the last four days – and there is more to come.
The Liverpool product headed down to London on Wednesday to talk over his reported £1m move to Premier League rivals QPR.
He had his medical on Thursday morning, then left Loftus Road for West Yorkshire to complete his immediate season-long switch to Town.
Having trained at PPG Canalside yesterday, he boarded to team bus to head back down South for an overnight stay head of today’s Championship game at Watford.
And tomorrow, he will be in Burton-upon-Trent to link up with the England Under 21 squad for their European Championship qualifiers in Lithuania next Friday and Moldova on Tuesday, September 9.
To add another dimension to his hectic schedule, the Warrington-born player turns 21 on Monday!
Both Robinson, who has signed a four-year contract in the capital, and QPR manager Harry Redknapp are agreed that a season at the John Smith’s Stadium will provide the perfect platform for his Loftus Road career.
Redknapp said: “Jack is a good young player and one for the future. He will continue his development this season in the Championship at Huddersfield, where I am sure he will do well.”
Robinson, who will compete with Scotland international Paul Dixon for Town’s left-back berth, said: “This loan will no doubt serve me well for my future.
“I definitely need another season of regular games under my belt and I am relishing the opportunity to play for Huddersfield, then return to QPR to show what I can do.”
Robinson, who will link up with former Liverpool teammate Conor Coady at Town, made 11 Reds appearances and has Championship experience via loans at Wolves and Blackpool.
“Both my previous loan spells have been a big part of my development,” he explained. “I’ve had a fantastic time at Liverpool, and I’m grateful to everyone at the club for the effort they have put into improving me as a player.
“I was a Liverpool fan as a kid, and to me, they are the biggest club in the world.
“But being a big club means they have world-class players, and my chances were always likely to be limited.
“I think I’d had my time there, so while leaving Liverpool for QPR was tough, it was also a simple decision, particularly with a manager like Harry Redknapp wanting to sign me.
“I don’t want to be sitting on the bench, I want to be out there playing and I’m willing to work hard for the opportunity to do that.
“There is tough competition here at Huddersfield, but I’ll be giving it everything to get into the team.”
Town have been tracking Robinson for some time, and he added: “It was always a part of my move to QPR that I would go out on loan.
“Huddersfield declared their interest to me a while ago, and I spoke to (former Liverpool teammate and ex-Town loan player) Martin Kelly, who told me they are a great club to play for.
“It’s good to have everything sorted, so I am keen to get going.”
Town stand-in manager Mark Lillis said: “It’s great that Harry Redknapp trusts us to look after Jack, and we will certainly do that.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations with him and it’s great to meet a lad who is so eager to be here and learn.
“He has a good pedigree, a good reputation and a good attitude.”
