Sky journalist: 28-year-old winger undergoing Aston Villa medical

By Will Butcher

Middlesbrough player Albert Adomah is currently undergoing a medical at Villa Park ahead of a move to Aston Villa, according to a Sky Sports journalist.

The 28-year-old winger is expected to become an Aston Villa player, as manager Roberto Di Matteo looks to beat Wednesday’s 11pm deadline.

Sky Sports transfer expert Kaveh Solhekol revealed via his personal Twitter account that the 18-time Ghana international is at the Midlands club to finalise a deal.

The former Bristol City winger is deemed surplus to requirements under Spanish boss Aitor Karanka and has fallen down the pecking order at the Riverside, with the likes of Stewart Downing, Christian Stuani and Gaston Ramirez ahead of him.

Adomah has less than 12 months remaining on his Riverside deal, which could mean Villa are able to bring in the winger in a cut-price deal.

The winger was integral to Middlesbrough’s promotion from the Championship last year, after making 47 league and cup appearances. He found the back of the net eight times and added the same number of assists.

Middlesbrough’s number 27 started his club’s season opener against Stoke, but only managed a 59th minute substitute appearance in their second match against Sunderland, before being left out of the squad against West Brom on Sunday.

In other Aston Vila transfer news, this winger is set to move the other way as Middlesbrough look to complete a deal for this former Barcelona winger.
