05 February 2009 10:25
City rejected a bid from their Championship counterparts and offered Adebola, out of contract in the summer, fresh terms at Ashton Gate.[LNB]Adebola concedes he was flattered by interest from elsewhere but with the club gunning for promotion, is content to commit his future to the Robins.[LNB]He told the Western Daily Press: "The chairman and the manager have showed their faith in me and they want me here.[LNB]"I am happy to stay because I feel I am doing well, the lads are playing well and we have a chance of being promoted - it would be hard for me to want to go.[LNB]"I have heard bits and bobs about the bid, but unfortunately as players we have little control over these things.[LNB]"It is flattering that a club has put a bid in for me because it means I must be doing something right.[LNB]"You just have to take it as it comes. You are told what you are doing and you have to put these things to the back of your mind."[LNB]City boss Gary Johnson has made it clear Adebola remains a key part of his plans for the rest of this season and beyond.[LNB]"I'm glad Dele is staying until the end of the season," said Johnson. "There was no way I wanted to lose him to Forest.[LNB]"They are a Championship rival and we're not in the business of selling our best players to our rivals. But I'm looking further ahead and I want Dele to still be here next season.[LNB]"There's a deal on the table for Dele and we'll be opening negotiations very soon."[LNB][LNB] Norwich 6/4[LNB], Bristol City 7/4[LNB], Draw 12/5[LNB]
