Recommended Posts

Well, every time I've started a thread about a player this summer within 12 hours they have signed so, welcome Albert Adomah?

HITC Sport understands that the Ghana winger has been persuaded by Villa

Big spending Aston Villa have rekindled their bid for Middlesbrough winger Albert Adomah, HITC Sport understands.

HITC Sport exclusively revealed last week that Villa had made a move for Adomah, after he rejected the offer of a new three-year deal at Boro - as it was only a small rise on his current package.

Now Villa - who have just signed Bristol City's Jonathan Kodjia in a deal worth £15million - are ready to spend around £6million on Adomah.

Quick, strong, six million quid, can't go wrong? 

As was noted in the speculation thread he has played in over 40 games in his last 6 seasons, all at this level.

He's 28 years old and has 24 goals and 15 assists in his last 130 games for Boro and has a handy 7.06 rating on WhoScored - https://www.whoscored.com/Players/35328/History/Albert-Adomah

I can't take YT clips seriously nowadays. £6m as a half decent squad player sounds ok, we certainly need numbers in the middle, could be great off the bench

I was just about to mention them both being Ghanaian, then it occurred to me that Adomah is from Lambeth! 

Ayew has resting bitch face everywhere he goes doesn't he?

Never seen him play before (as with most our signings) but only 15 assists seems a small amount for a winger. Hopefully he can feed Rudi more

He does seem to have a properly miserable demeanour, no matter what the situation. 

If only I was a qualified body language expert like so many of our fans on Twitter, then I could work out exactly what he's thinking...

Adomah will not be an option off the bench, he's still playing for Middlesbrough, I doubt he'd give that up to sit on Villas bench
