Despite playing a key role in Aston Villa’s promotion to the Premier League, Albert Adomah was released by Dean Smith shortly after their Wembley play-off final win.

As a result, the veteran Ghanaian international is now one of the most sought after free-agents in the Championship. Bristol Live report that the clubs interested in Adomah include Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Millwall.

The 31-year-old has won promotion with both Middlesborough and now Villa, and therefore has vast Championship experience, and would undoubtedly be a strong asset for many teams in the league.

Bristol City are one team interested in acquiring the winger. Indeed, a return to Ashton Gate for Adomah seems plausible considering his status in Bristol as a fan-favourite. He made 136 appearances for City, and a second-spell for the The Robins would certainly excite the Ashton Gate faithful. Indeed, the impending departure of Callum O’Dowda away from Bristol City also leaves room for another winger in the Robins’ squad. Adomah and O’Dowda possess a number of similar attributes, including direct running, and skilful dribbling, and therefore the Ghanaian international could be the perfect replacement if O’Dowda is to leave, as expected.

However, a host of other clubs are likely to be interested in acquiring Adomah’s signature. Indeed, while at 31, the veteran is nearing the end of his career, his free-agent status makes him a low-risk option for Championship squads. Nottingham Forest are one of these teams interested in signing Adomah, with Martin O’Neil seeing the winger’s experience and Championship know-how as a key ingredient for Forest’s play-off push next season. Millwall are also looking to add Adomah to their squad, and they may be able to attract the Ghanaian with the promise of regular first-team football and a return to London, where he grew up.
