The Ghana international sheds light on the impact of the Cote d'Ivoire striker on and off the pitch

Jonathan Kodjia may have finished the season as Aston Villa's top scorer, but according to teammate Albert Adomah, the Ivorian does more than just finding the back of the net.

The striker hit 19 goals to help the Claret and Blue finish 13th in the English Championship, but apparently shows another form of responsibility away from the pitch.

“It’s fun watching him entertain us in the dressing room. He is definitely the funniest," Adomah told the club's official website.

“Kodjia puts me to shame. I used to dance around a lot in the dressing room but I leave it to Kodjia now.

“He entertains and dances to his rap music. He’s got all the moves – like the dab as the youngsters call it these days.

“For me, you just have to look at him and he puts a smile on your face.

“Gabby’s also very funny in the dressing room, Micah and Bunny also make me laugh – they all have a different sense of humour.

“With Kodjia, I just look at him and laugh, especially when there’s music on.”

In summer last year, Kodjia joined Villa from Bristol City on a four-year deal worth an initial £11 million.

According to the Claret and Blue, the fee could potentially rise to a Championship record fee of £15m.

“He had an immense season on the pitch too,” Adomah said.

“Forget his price tag, he’s done the business. 

“He’s a striker, he’s there to score goals and he’s delivered.”

Like Kodjia, Adomah transferred to Villa last summer.
