Aston Villa fans were treated to a deadline day transfer saga on Friday as the club were willing to let winger Albert Adomah leave. However the 30-year-old couldn’t agree terms on a move to Boro, according to the Birmingham Mail, meaning he will remain at Villa Park.
Last season was certainly Adomah’s best of his career and he finished as Villa’s top scorer with 15 goals despite playing from out wide.
The Ghanaian international arrived at Villa from Boro in 2016 during Roberto Di Matteo’s reign at Villa Park, but the Birmingham Mail reports that everything was agreed for him to return to the Teesside club this summer until the player and club couldn’t agree terms beyond the initial loan deal.
With Villa having already signed wingers Yannick Bolasie and Anwar El Ghazi on loan deals it looked as though Adomah would struggle for game time under Steve Bruce, but Villa fans on Twitter were ecstatic when it was announced he would be staying and they felt he would provide perfect back up to the new boys. Check out some of the best tweets below.
We struggled near the end of the season due to us having 2 wingers and then rest not being able to play due to them being injured
Also it’s a massive risk especially since Bolasie gets injured a lot so Bruce should keep Albert for backup or rotation

Steve Bruce shouldn’t be in Steve Bruce’s longterm plans

Also we are pretty lucky Adomah isn’t the kind of guy to become toxic in the dressing room. Will get his head down. Hope he can rediscover his form from sept-feb last season.

All in all I’m glad Adomah is staying, very decent player to have as backup/rotation.

Serious questions should be asked about how Villa have just treated Albert Adomah. What in the hell. https://t.co/rSuZ6j5gXF
