Aston Villa winger Albert Adomah is ‘likely’ to leave the club in January according to Birmingham Live’s Aston Villa writer Alex Dicken.
Aston Villa’s Albert Adomah looked to be on his way out of the club on deadline day, with contract talks at Villa Park faltering, he was told to find a new club. However, with a proposed loan move to former side Middlesbrough on the cards, both parties ultimately couldn’t agree personal terms.
Since deadline day, Adomah has not played for Villa, mostly due to a back injury. However, with new additions Yannick Bolasie from Everton and Anwar El Ghazi from French side LOSC Lille, Adomah may find it difficult to get back into the first team fold when he is back to full fitness.
Villa writer Alex Dicken also believes this, and feels that the Ghanaian international will be the topic of conversation in the January transfer window. He said, “Adomah will look to work his way back into Villa’s starting XI over the next few months but the likelihood is we’ll be writing about him again in January.”
Dicken also stated that if Villa and Adomah parted ways, plenty of supporters would certainly be disappointed.
“He’s very popular, largely because he’s always got a smile on his face. Villa haven’t had many players who have played with a smile on their face in recent years”, he said.
“The anger when it emerged Villa were willing to let him join Boro on deadline day certainly suggests [they would be disappointed].
