Albert Adomah was watched by Newcastle towards the end of last season and is the subject of a potential bid according to the Ghanaian press.

The right winger/attacking midfielder is reported to have impressed, when watched by Newcastle scouts as Middlesbrough defeated Brentford in the semi-finals of the end of season play-offs.

Born in London but a Ghana international via his family background, Adomah came through non-league football before joining Barnet and Bristol City, before Middlesbrough paid around £1m for him two years ago.

Part of Ghana’s squad at the World Cup in Brazil (started one game and came on as a sub in another), Albert Adomah has impressed in his two seasons on Teesside.

The 27 year old made 46 Championship appearances for Middlesbrough last season as they failed at the last hurdle to make it into the Premier League.

Adomah scored 6 league goals to go with the 12 he notched the season before, leading to these reports of a supposed Newcastle move, along with Spurs and Watford who are also credited with interest in taking the winger into the Premier League for the first time.

Like all transfer speculation we will believe it when we see it but Newcastle are increasingly being linked with players from the Championship, despite claims of serious interest in signing Premier League players.

With only 11 days until pre season training starts and 7 weeks until the Premier League kicks off, Newcastle still await their first signing of the summer.

    Is he free, stupid and prepared to play for free? And then not complain no matter how badly he is treated? Just sign on the line mate!

    If you sign only championship players surely there’s only one place you’ll end up?

    When players are mentioned as potential signings the first thing you look at is their age. Over twenty fives are a no go as little or no sell on value. Just another name to add to the list. Cant see us buying a winger when we have the useless Ameobertan brothers still on the books.

    Michael Maximus Moose Seems a bit like you want us to fail dismally moose. Don’t get me wrong I hate Ashley as much as the next man as well as his sock puppet brigade on the board. My belief is that 8th and challenging for a cup is ludicrous and laughable but I don’t see us getting relegated, just another dismal, disappointing season of trying to finish above the bottom 4 or 5. One thing for sure, I don’t believe any of the hype round wally…think he’ll be worse than Pardew personally.
