Championship record-breaker set to leave QPR this summer

QPR have confirmed winger Albert Adomah will be leaving the club following the conclusion of his contract this summer.

QPR signed Adomah in the summer of 2020, bringing him in from Nottingham Forest.

The move marked a dream move for the Ghanaian, linking up with the club he has supported all his life after coming up against them on numerous occasions over the course of his extended career in the Championship.

Four years later and Adomah has played 129 times for the R’s, chipping in with six goals and nine assists while becoming a firm Loftus Road favourite along the way.

Questions have surrounded his future coming into this summer though and now, with his contract winding down, Adomah’s fate has been confirmed.

As announced by QPR on Thursday, Adomah will be leaving the club when his contract expires.

The announcement comes after he broke the Championship appearance record in front of his adoring supporters as the R’s thrashed Leeds United to secure safety. Adomah has now played a massive 525 Championship games and he’ll have one last chance to add to that total once more against Coventry City this weekend.

Who is this?

Speaking upon the confirmation of his exit, he said:

“It’s been unbelievable, amazing – I get chills when I think about the four seasons I’ve enjoyed here.

“To end it in the way I have done is incredible. It’s a milestone I’ve been waiting to break and to be given the opportunity to do so by the gaffer last Friday, in my final home game and in front of the mighty Super Hoops supporters – thank you. Words can’t describe it.”

What next for Adomah?

While many players may well look to hang up the boots when they become a free agent at 36, it looks as though that won’t be the case for Adomah.

He later added that he hopes to continue playing until he’s at least 37. He’s got eyes on a return closer to his home in the midlands, so we may not have seen the last of the QPR favourite just yet.

Regardless of where Adomah ends up next, he has ensured he’s going down in Championship history.

He sits atop the appearance table but and is well remembered for his times as a fantastic and tricky winger during prime stints with Bristol City, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. Adomah has been a second-tier mainstay ever since stepping up from Barnet and he’s enjoyed a fairytale end to his R’s career.

Adomah bids a fond farewell to Loftus Road, but it might not be the end of his football journey.
