Aston Villa coach Steve Bruce has challenged Ghanaian striker Albert Adomah to score 20 goals this season.

The 29-year-old netted a brace in Villa’s 2-0 win over Ipswich in the Championship this past weekend and has a tally of 10 league goals to his name.

“He’s had a wonderful return, as I’ve said now for the past few weeks,” Bruce said.

“At the start, because of the form of Andre Green, he wasn’t in the team, so it just shows you. He’s worked hard and he’s got his reward.

“Playing on the left he looks so comfortable coming in on his right foot and running across the line.

“He’s a threat and that’s 11 goals [across all competitions] he’s got which is a wonderful return.

“Long may it continue and there’s no reason now why he can’t set his sights to go and get another 10 at this part of the season.”

Villa are well in contention to make a return to the Premier League, as they are placed fourth on the Championship table.

Ahmed Elmohamady has had the release clause in his contract with Hull City activated by Aston Villa, according to Sky Sports.

The Egyptian player is reportedly returning from the Tigers’ preseason tour in Portugal to have talks with Villa.

Should the Birmingham club complete a deal for the versatile Pharaohs man, it will be the third time that manager Steve Bruce has signed him.

Bruce also brought Elmohamady to Sunderland in 2010 and Hull in 2012.

Despite the Tigers’ relegation from the Premier League last season, the Egyptian was one of the club’s top performing players and appeared in 41 matches across all competitions.

Bruce is looking to build a Villa team capable of securing promotion back to the English top flight and has already secured the services of former Chelsea captain John Terry.
