Aston Villa forward Albert Adomah is set to be fit and ready for the club’s clash against Middlesbrough on Saturday, according to a report.
The Birmingham Mail claim on their website that the 30-year-old winger has recovered from an injury scare suffered in the 2-1 defeat to Brentford on Boxing Day, lasting just 18 minutes before being forced off.
It was claimed by manager Steve Bruce that the Ghanaian international had suffered a dead leg, and that he would undergo tests to assess the damage, and it appears as though he has been passed as fully fit for Saturdays showdown with Boro.
The attacker’s availability will come as a huge boost to Villa’s hopes of securing victory over the north east side, with the former Boro man having netted 11 league goals in 20 appearances this season to sit joint sixth in the Championship’s top scorer table.
Signed from Middlesbrough in a deadline day deal back in the summer of 2016, Adomah has gone on to make 61 appearances for the club across all competitions, although has massively improved his tally in front of goal during the current campaign, with 12 goals in comparison to last season’s three.
If selected to join the squad, he will be making his first return to Middlesbrough since leaving the club on Saturday, with Boro having dropped down to join Villa in the Championship last season.
In other Aston Villa news, the club could see one of their top talents depart in January.
