Jamaica like look of Robinson

Derby striker Theo Robinson's excellent form has come to the attention of Jamaica, who are reportedly set to hand him an international call-up.

The Rams forward, who has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in January, is one of the top scorers in the Championship this term with seven goals to his name.

The Jamaican Football Federation have been making checks and are now ready to hand Birmingham-born Robinson his inaugural call-up ahead of their clash with Cuba next month.

Jamaica have targeted a number of English-based players to bolster their World Cup qualifying campaign, but getting Robinson on board will represent a huge coup for the Reggae Boyz given he is still only 23.

Robinson himself has been in great form for Derby and he has attracted the attention of a number of clubs ahead if the January window.

Aston Villa, Sunderland, QPR and Wigan are all said to be keeping tabs on his situation along with Championship outfits Crystal Palace and Wolves.
