Albert Adomah insists his future is in Bristol City's hands
Albert Adomah insists his future is in Bristol City's hands.
As revealed by The Post yesterday, the Robins have rejected a £1m bid for the winger from Championship rivals Crystal Palace.
But the Eagles are already preparing a second improved offer and anything in the region of £2m plus add-ons is likely to be enough to tempt City's board of directors, who are under pressure to balance the books at Ashton Gate.
Informed of Palace's offer just minutes after the final whistle in Ghana's 1-0 African Cup of Nations victory over Mali in Port Elizabeth yesterday, Adomah admitted his fate was out of his hands.

He said: "It's not down to me whether I go. At the moment, I'm happy at Bristol City. It's in the club's hands."
Adomah is still to speak with his agent, Tony Finnigan, who has been dealing with City football consultant Mark Ashton.
He added: "I have not heard of any request. I think they are letting me concentrate on the cup. I wish them luck with their game against Ipswich and, hopefully, they will do well."
It is entirely possible that Adomah, who joined City from Barnet in 2010, has played his last game for the Championship strugglers.
Palace are expected to up their offer just as soon as they receive the initial £10m down payment Manchester United have agreed to pay them for the services of teenage winger Wilfried Zaha.
Adomah has made 121 appearances for Citya and scord 15 goals. He has 18 months of his Ashton Gate contract to run.
