It is absolutely no surprise that Che Adams is attracting interest from Premier League clubs after an extremely promising first season of Championship football with Blues.

As the season grew on, Adams became even more crucial to the side and their hopes of survival.

Indeed, he scored the goal on the final day of the season away at Bristol City that saved Blues from relegation to League One.

Former manager Gary Rowett knew there was potential in the 20-year-old when he signed him last summer from Sheffield United for around £1.9m.

In his first few months at the club, I think the issue was about where to play Adams and where he would be most effective.

He’s played both out wide and through the middle which shows his versatility and variety that he brings to the table.

But, in my opinion, he flourished when he played through the middle. He has the pace, the strength and the awareness to play a role which for some youngsters, may be a struggle.

For me, Adams is still extremely raw and has a lot to work on in order to fully polish him for a likely move to the Premier League in the future.

There’s no doubting that he`ll play at the top level of English football but, for now, he’s best placed staying at Blues for at least another season where he can continue to flourish and develop under Harry Redknapp.

Blues are reportedly reluctant to sell their prized asset this summer but when the time does come for Adams to move on, I would expect Blues not to sell him for as little as we did with the likes of Demarai Gray and Nathan Redmond. Let’s also remember that we’re in a far better situation financially than when we needed to sell players on the cheap to keep afloat.

Who knows, a move to the Premier League for Adams may come along much sooner if Blues and Redknapp mastermind their own success in the upcoming campaign.

  • Its a no brainer. If we got 7 million for him we would need to spend at least 7 million in todays market to replace him, so unless its more like 15 million I cant see the club wanting to do business. The player is happy where he is in terms of development and club and hasn’t been tapped up yet so lets look at adding to the team rather than speculating on where someone should be for the benefit of their development. He is in the right place an everyone knows it. Gray would have benefited from another season at Blues but we needed the money back then and he was sold on the cheap. Those days are gone for now Luke.

  • If Todays news is true and we are entering a silly wage war with Villa over John Terry-then lets rethink the whole business. Terry will be 37 in a few months time and to pay over £100k per week is bordering on the obscene.

  • Ohio. There is talk that villa have put forward 125k per week with a optional one year renewable contract. I Don’t think we will enter a bidding war with them if that is true. We will have to look elsewhere! As good as Terry is he ant worth that amount of money and if he goes to Vile now then he as only gone for the money and his hart it not in it. I don’t want a player Terry or not coming here just for a big last payday and not really bothered how thing go just as long as they pick up there retirement funned. NO THANKS KRO

  • Terry is a good player but not worth that much money. Villa like to wast money. We saw that last season. Blues are very good at bringing in key players, so let’s see wot happens. Harry is good at wot he does. As you will soon see.
