Aston Villa have put any potential contract discussions with Albert Adomah to one side, according to Birmingham Live. But should fans have concerns about the news?
Villa have yet to open contract discussions with Adomah which means he could be set to become a free agent in the summer. It appears as though the wide player would like to stay but after contacting the club various times about his situation, things haven’t come along any further.
This could be good news for Leeds who may look to revive previous interest in the 31-year-old. Last summer a return to Middlesbrough for Adomah collapsed whilst Villa approached Leeds about a potential move for their player. It’s also understood by Birmingham Live that the latter had two bids rejected in January.
Adomah’s saga has dragged on for a while now but it could be about to come to an end if he isn’t offered a new deal.
Coming off the back of a 14 goal season during a run to the play-off final, Adomah’s form in 2018/19 has been largely inconsistent. At 31, his best days look behind him and as a result, Villa should focus on the future.
In 20-year-old Andre Green, the Villans have a hugely talented youngster on their books and after returning from a short loan spell with Portsmouth, he’s begun to feature more often in Dean Smith’s plans.
With the pair of them both wingers, Adomah’s possible departure can pave the way for a more permanent spot in the team for the arguably more exciting Green. Fortunately for Villa, they haven’t had trouble scoring goals this season but the latter’s dribbling ability could give them an added dimension in the final third, especially now he’s receiving more first-team experience.
Aston Villa may finally lose Jack Grealish in the summer too. By bringing through another one of their own talents and using Green more, it would help soften the blow.
