Looks like it might be a busy day for Aston Villa.
Uncle Albert is now being linked with an exit.
DeanoVilla in the forum thread says: “I would definitely sell Thor. He’s done ok in patches but I can’t imagine he’ll want to be a bit part player again this season. With McGinn and Tuanzebe coming in, and Whelan and Jedi already here, his chances are limited…. plus we have Doyle-Hayes chomping at the bit too. If we can get some money for him it could be the best move for club and player.”
Adding, “Adomah… I’d keep. Not only because he’s a good player, but he’s also supposedly very good in the dressing room and a fun character. Having lost Terry and Snoddy it’s important we keep some characters around the club.“
Adomah has been good for us, and in patches when he was scoring for fun, great. However, I think this might well be a perfect time for him to move on. You? His 15 goals last season were most appreciated mind you!
His form dropped off badly last season and maybe with us wanting to bring through some from the youth and also the recent signing with more to perhaps come today, it might be a good time to say thanks and bon voyage?
https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport are reporting that Adomah is wanted by both Leeds United and Middlesbrough.
Adomah has only a year left on his current contract and apparently, Villa have refused to enter talks with the player for a new contract and are willing to let him go.
According to The Birmingham Mail Birkir Bjarnason is a target for Serie B club Empoli. I can’t see too much information on this one, however, it wouldn’t surprise me if he wanted out, after not making the starting line up again v Hull City on Monday night.
I don’t mind him going if we have replaced him with better and if Bruce is sure that we have enough back up. I do like his energy and attitude though, so would be more than happy if he stayed and forced his way into the team. I’d actually rather see Jedinak depart now if it was a straight choice, just purely on age. Can I say that or will I be up in the Politically Correct Court for ageism?!
The Brum Mail also say that Steve Bruce hasn’t given up on bringing back West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass for another loan spell at Villa.
Soon over folks, let’s hope for a few smiles come the end of this window.
