New Aston Villa signing Adama Traore expected to represent Mali over Spain

Adama Traore is expected to change his national allegiance from Spain to Mali after sealing a move to Aston Villa from Barcelona.

New Aston Villa signing Adama Traore has opted to play for Mali rather than Spain at international level.

Traore, who joined Villa from Barcelona in a deal reported to be worth £7m, has already represented Spain at youth international levels.

However, the Mali Football Federation told BBC Sport that it has already met with the 19-year-old and say he plans to play for the homeland of his parents after securing a move away from Camp Nou.

FIFA is yet to receive an official request from the winger regarding his national allegiance.
