Paul Robinson has tipped John McGinn to quit Aston Villa if they are relegated and suggested he may join rivals Wolves.
The former England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed a transfer to Molineux would be “an attractive proposition” for the 25-year-old.
According to TEAMtalk, McGinn is subject to interest from Wolves and Everton with the Claret and Blues unlikely to be able to keep hold of the player if they suffer relegation.
The Scotland international has been sidelined since December 21 having fractured his ankle in a home defeat to Southampton.
When asked if a return to the Championship would lead to McGinn quitting Villa Park, Robinson told Football Insider: “Without a doubt. McGinn has been out injured but he has had a great season.
“He has made a name for himself at international level as well and if they do go down he will be one they stand to lose.”
Robinson suggested a move to Molineux is on the cards for McGinn.
“Wolves is a different story now,” he told Football Insider. “The way that Nuno Espirito Santo has turned that club into serious European contenders in a short space of time. Wolves are back. It is an attractive proposition for any player.”
McGinn, who has made 20 appearances so far this campaign, returned to full training earlier this month.
Villa are currently two points adrift of safety with all Premier League fixtures currently suspended “indefinitely” due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
