Albert Adomah: Bristol City winger is a target for Wigan

Adomah, who has 12 months left on his contract, handed in a transfer request at Ashton Gate last week after two bids from Wigan, reportedly in the region of £850,000, were rejected.

The 25-year-old has been left out of City's pre-season training camp in Spain and O'Driscoll wants the matter sorted by the time the squad return at the end of the week.

"I want this settled by the time we get back from Spain and I don't want it dragging on into the season," said O'Driscoll in the Bristol Evening Post.

"If he wants to see out the last year of his contract here, then fine. If we sell him, then I don't have a problem with that either. Albert understands that and is okay with it.

"It is out of my hands to a degree and is down to the powers that be, but hopefully it will be settled quickly.

"I've spoken to Albert and I've told him I just want to bring this thing to a head. Either it is going to happen or it is not.

"The sooner the situation is sorted out one way or the other the better. Until something is decided, there will continue to be speculation and I will not be able to play him."

Regarding Wigan's bid for the former Barnet wide-man, O'Driscoll added: "There is still an offer on the table from Wigan. I've spoken to Owen Coyle and asked if that offer is still kosher and he told me he likes the boy.

"But it is not my money and it is up to others to decide what they want to do and make it clear so we can move on."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
