Report: QPR close in on Middlesbrough winger Albert Adomah despite Nottingham Forest enquiries

The Ghanaian winger has had a huge bust-up with Boro boss Aitor Karanka.

QPR are looking at ending the transfer saga of Middlesbrough winger Albert Adomah. The Ghanaian wide man reportedly handed in a transfer request earlier this summer after a fall out with manager Aitor Karanka after a 1-0 defeat at home to Bristol City.

Now The Northern Echo is reporting that QPR are the frontrunners to get hold of the player.

They say that QPR are ahead of Nottingham Forest in the running for the player. Middlesbrough had been hoping to include Adomah in any deal that might see Michail Antonio leave Forest before the transfer deadline.

However, the report claims that Boro would be struggling to pay Adomah’s wages under their transfer embargo and that a move to QPR, with a loan deal or a fee of £4 million, seemingly the more likely option.

If QPR were to tie down a deal for Adomah, who was a key player for Boro last season, it would free them up to move on Matty Phillips – who has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs.
