Things have been looking pretty rosy for those at Villa Park recently as Aston Villa appear to have finally hit the gears and hit the ground running when it matters most. Dean Smith’s side have certainly turned themselves into genuine promotion contenders and with eight games to go, it really could not be going too better for them at the moment.
Whether they do achieve Premier League football remains to be seen, however, one man’s future at the club also looks to be in a lot of doubt as the Championship campaign comes to its final stages.
What’s the News?
According to a report by BirminghamLive, Aston Villa are yet to open talks with Albert Adomah about a new contract.
The 31-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer and is understood to have approached the Villans about an extension multiple times in the past, however, it would seem the club are yet to budge.
Chief executive Christian Purslow has allegedly reassured Adomah of his position in the team, whilst Smith has spoken highly of him.
Adomah has been a regular for Aston Villa this season, having made 30 appearances across all competitions, however, his stats have not been anything to really shout about, which could be one of the reasons as to why the club have decided to put the idea of a contract extension in doubt.
The 31-year-old has scored just one goal and has provided two assists, with two of those coming in the Second City derby against Birmingham City at Villa Park in November before he was injured.
And, since that four-week spell on the sidelines, arguably, he has been far from his best and has struggled to find his rhythm within Smith’s side as he has largely been used in a rather bit-part capacity.
Financial Fair Play regulations have also become a cause for concern, with the Villans one of a couple of teams that could be handed sanctions in the future because of breaching rules – although that remains to be seen.
However, with Purslow’s alleged reassurances and Smith’s thoughts about him, it may just be a case that the club have not got around to contract talks at the moment and could hand him one within days of his current deal expiring.
Aston Villa fans, do you believe Adomah should be handed a new deal? Or do you think he will leave the club in the summer? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
