According to Birmingham Live, Aston Villa have put contract talks with winger Albert Adomah – who was on Leeds United‘s radar last summer – on hold, despite the fact his deal is set to expire at the end of this season.

Albert Adomah’s contract negotiations have been put on the shelf by Aston Villa, Birmingham Live has claimed.

Adomah’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season but the club are yet to enter talks with the winger over possibly extending his stay at Villa Park. And, by the sounds of things, they will not be looking to begin discussions any time soon.

It has been reported here on The72 that Villa are looking to cut a large chunk off of their wage budget in the upcoming summer transfer window and Adomah’s name has been mentioned as one of those who could potentially be sacrificed as they look to cut as much as £250,000 off their wage bill.

However, Adomah has been keen to remain with Aston Villa and has been trying to negotiate a new deal with the club, only for his attempts to be knocked back. He turned down interest from Leeds United and Middlesbrough during the summer transfer window and the report from Birmingham Live adds that the club reportedly turned down two offers from fellow Championship sides in January.

Adomah has been a mainstay in the Aston Villa side since his arrival from Middlesbrough in 2016. He has played 113 games for the club, but he may not get the chance to add to his total once the season comes to an end.
