'Signing was a no-brainer' - Adams

17 January 2013

Full-back says he needed little convincing to make Coventry his home

Coventry City full-back Blair Adams said the decision to sign for the Sky Blues on a permanent basis was a 'no-brainer'.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal after a successful loan spell from Premier League side Sunderland which saw him make 15 appearances for City since his arrival in November 2012.

Adams had infact started every game of his loan spell from the Black Cats, putting together a string of displays that prompted Sky Blues boss Mark Robins to tie him up on a deal which will see him at the Ricoh Arena until June 2015.

"It's fantastic news and I'm really happy to have signed and got it done," Adams said.

"It's been brilliant here and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've played plenty of games that have been coming thick and fast and the lads and the gaffer have been brilliant with me.

"There's nothing wrong with the place at all for me so the decision to sign was a bit of a no-brainer.

"It's been tough because we've had some difficult games but I've enjoyed that as well because that's what I'm here for. Hopefully I've put in some good performances for the team and the gaffer has seemed pleased with me because he's signed me so I hope I can carry on."

The South Shields-born youngster added he was grateful to Robins for giving him a chance to kickstart his career.

"If I was at Sunderland I would be on the bench because it's really difficult to break into a Premier League first team when you're young but the gaffer has given me a chance here so hopefully I can repay him with good performances and try to help us get back in the Championship.

"He's picked up things I need to improve on and he's been brilliant for me and helped me alot so hopefully I can continue to improve while I'm here.

"Some of the results we've had in the last few weeks have been brilliant and we need to keep going and take it one game at a time and pick up as many points as we can, especially at home, because if we can turn draws into wins then hopefully we can be in and around the promotion mix."
