Daniel Jebbison, the 18-year-old striker of Jamaican and English descent, has joined English League One club Burton Albion on a season-long loan from Championship side Sheffield United.
The Canadian-born teenager, who represented England in an Under-18 friendly against Wales in March, was named in Canada’s 60-player provisional squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup but could be of interest to Jamaica head coach Theodore Whitmore.
Jebbison became the youngest ever player – 17 years and 309 days – to score on his English Premier League debut, when he netted as a second-half substitute for Sheffield United against Everton in May.
The 6’3” star played four matches for the Blades, having come through the development teams, and played twice on loan at non-league side Chorley.
Jamaica are currently struggling to score goals so have recruited West Ham veteran Michail Antonio in a bid to reach next year’s FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar. However, Jebbison could be a player that Whitmore will added to his ever increasing British-based contingent.
Former Jamaica striker Theo Robinson, who failed to score in his seven internationals for the Reggae Boyz, has joined English fourth tier team Bradford City until the end of the season.
The English-born 32-year-old’s contract at Port Vale was cancelled by mutual consent in August.
Journeyman Robinson kicked off his career with Watford and representing a string of other British teams including Hereford, Huddersfield Town, Millwall, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers, Motherwell, Lincoln City and Southend. He rejoined Port Vale last year for a second spell, and bagged three goals in 29 appearances last term.
