Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is pleased with Ghanaian international Albert Adomah’s surge in form.

The 29-year-old midfielder has established himself as one of the key players for the English Championship side.

Adomah, who last played for Ghana in 2015, has netted eight goals in 14 league matches for Villa this season.

“I’m delighted with Albert, he’s in great form,” Bruce told Villa’s official website.

Adomah made it three goals in two league matches when he netted against Sunderland on Tuesday.

“He was a doubt before the game, we thought he had a bit of a calf problem but he wanted to play,” he added.

“And he scored another goal, which is great.”

Adomah will look to inspire Villa to victory when they face Ipswich Town in a league match on Saturday.
