The English midfielder-forward has enjoyed his time playing in the Championship, and he’s already in the radar of some Premier League clubs.

22-year-old footballer Che Adams is making a lot of noise in the English Championship.

The midfielder-attacker is enjoying his time with Birmingham City, a team he joined in 2016.

And former Chelsea striker Kevin Wilson explained the path to the top the English player is taking.

“It was a big commitment for him. He lived in Leicester and it was not just a case of jumping in the car,” Wilson explained to The Guardian.

“At 16 it cost him and his parents money to get him there. He was not being paid because he was on like a YT course, a BTec they were doing at the college.”

“You have to give him a lot of credit for getting on a bus at 6.30am and coming in to do the education. He deserves everything he gets because he has worked so hard to get to this stage,” he added.

“We were 3-1 down and he came on with about half an hour to go and he scored two and set one up,” former teammate Matt Baker explained.

“That was when everyone knew he would be starting. After about a month of him being a first-team player, it was not a matter of if he was going to go, it was when.”

“Che played just in behind the striker, in a free role where he was prolific. Every time he scored people were saying it would add an extra few thousand pounds to his transfer fee,” he said.

Adams is currently in the sight of some English Premier League teams and some of the biggest Championship clubs.
