The 23-year-old completed his £2million move to Fulham on Thursday afternoon, with the Cottagers taking advantage of a relegation clause in his contract.

Latics had accepted a bid of around three times that figure in January from Italian giants AC Milan, only for the move to fall through at the 11th hour due to a complication with the medical.

Robinson recovered from the setback to finish the campaign strongly, and he admits he'll remember his two years at the DW - which included one season on loan from Everton - with much fondness.

"First of all, I cannot thank everyone involved with @laticsofficial for the two years I’ve spent there," he tweeted.

"Not only have I enjoyed every second on the pitch, but more importantly this team has gotten me through some very hard times in my career and helped me develop into who I am now.

"Couldn’t ask for a better set of team-mates, staff or fans and, even though it's a shame how last season ended, I really hope the club ends up back where it belongs. Thank you!!"
