Swansea City keen on Adomah
Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is trying to sign Bristol City’s Ghanaian winger Albert Adomah, according to the Mirror. The amount being mentioned is £3 million for the player.
The forward, now 24 years, was first called up for the Black Stars in the friendly against Nigeria in London that never came up due to the London riots. But he did have his chance as 77th minute substitution gave him a first national team start against Brazil last September.
Adomah was Bristol City’s player of the year two seasons ago and caught the eye of then Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic with his performances. He has gone on to do well in the Championship and it seems Laudrup wants him.
Adomah started from modest beginnings and news of Premier League interest should increase his stock. He started his playing career with non-league side Harrow Borough, while he combined playing for the club with studying industrial painting at college, according to the Mirror.
The player was then signed by League Two side Barnet where he spent two years before joining Bristol City for a fee of £150,000. He has played 91 league matches for the Robins, and scored ten goals.
Adomah recently signed a new three-year contract at Ashton Gate.
The Brazil effect
After his Brazil cameo, the experience gave Adomah a boost especially when he swapped jerseys with Neymar, in order to give his brother a special present.
"I gave my brother Neymar’s top, which I swapped with my City one, but I also got Pato’s top for myself," he said at the time.
Playing in the Premier League could incrementally spike his chances of a place in the national team.
