Nineteen-year-old Robinson is currently on loan at Preston North End, but like Grealish did at Notts County last season, he is eager to make enough of an impression to force his way into Paul Lambert's thinking at Villa Park.
"One of my best friends Jack Grealish is getting in [at Villa] now and he did a year at Notts County last season, played 38 games, and he's getting his chance now," Robinson is been quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
"It can be done and at Villa it's probably one of the better academies who give younger players a chance. That's what I'm trying to do, get back there and push into the first team."
Robinson is yet to score in any of his six outings for Preston this season.
