Birmingham City are considering a move to bring Albert Adomah to St. Andrew’s this summer.
That’s according to a report by Football League World, who claim that the Queens Park Rangers winger is considering his future at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium after a disappointing campaign for Mark Warburton’s side.
The report goes on to state that Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham City side, as well as the likes of Bristol City, Ipswich Town, Derby County and Luton Town, are keeping a close eye on the situation of the 33-year-old ahead of a potential move in the upcoming transfer window.
With the Blues boss recently stating his desire to spend wisely in the transfer market, with the aim of gradually building a side that is capable of mounting a promotion push, rather than spending big on players and hoping for an immediate top-six finish next season, the signing of the 33-year-old Admoah would certainly not fit the 44-year-old’s brief.
The QPR winger did not enjoy the best of seasons after making his move to west London back in October, scoring two goals, providing five assists and creating seven big chances over his 34 Championship appearances this season – only seven of which came as starts.
Aside from these lacklustre displays, Adomah is also reported to earn a weekly wage of £13k-per-week with QPR, an amount that ranks him as the club’s joint-highest earner, and, if he were to move to St. Andrew’s this summer, would also see him towards the top end of the Birmingham City wage bill.
Furthermore, with the Ghana international under contract at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium until the summer of 2022, the 33-year-old would also cost the Blues a transfer fee, something that the club would struggle to get back on the winger considering the fact he is very much heading towards the twilight of his career.
As such, if Bowyer were to go on to complete a deal for the former Aston Villa man this summer, it could easily be argued that Adomah has the potential to be the 44-year-old’s first major transfer mistake in his time at Birmingham.
