Nottingham Forest are showing a keen interest in signing Albert Adomah, according to a report from Bristol Live.

The Reds are set to battle Millwall and Bristol City for the 31-year-old who won promotion to the Premier League with Aston Villa last season.

The player with 19 international caps for Ghana can play on either flank and boasts ample experience in the second-tier.

During 372 Championship games, he has scored 61 goals and registered 62 assists.

Adomah wouldn’t command a transfer fee as he is a free agent and the report suggests that Forest have expressed verbal interest in the player.

Seat Pitch Summary

Adomah would be a solid but unspectacular signing for Forest.


Last season was a bit of a struggle for the London-born winger. In 26 starts he netted just four times and contributed three assists.

That said, he wouldn’t command a transfer fee, whilst he would solve a somewhat problem position for the Reds.

Matty Cash and Arvin Appiah would currently be the two players battling for the place on the right-wing. Cash, in particular, has struggled with consistency and some competition would be ideal.

There are no doubts about Adomah’s credentials at Championship level and he might be an ideal option to pursue on a free transfer.

The winger will have the bit between his teeth having won promotion recently and Martin O’Neill could certainly do a lot worse than the 31-year-old.
