Sunderland Youngster Sent To Coventry

Gareth Copley

Ah the headline that gets used every time a player moves to the Midlands side. We're not original at all. Anyways, young left-back Blair Adams has joined Coventry on loan until January.

Sunderland left-back Blair Adams has become the latest to move out on loan, joining Coventry City on loan until at least January 5th.

Adams remains highly rated at the club, despite being yet to make a first team breakthrough. Now aged 21 and approaching a pivotal period in his development, getting games will certainly though increase his chances of getting in the first team picture.

Coventry City boss Mark Robbins was over the moon with the capture, telling the Sky Blues official site;

We're delighted to have him. He's a young player who's keen to do well and keen to make his mark.

Sunderland have helped us out massively in the way they have pushed this through so we have to thank them for that because there was a lot of interest in him but it's a big step for him and hopefully he can fulfil his potential over the period we have him.

He'll get forward for us, it gives us another option at left-back but he's played at left wing as well so there is that option to move him up one.

Adams has previously spent time on loan at Northampton Town and Brentford, where he played predominantly in an advanced position.

Whilst Danny Rose and Jack Colback currently have a monopoly on the position, there's no assurances that either will stay at the club, or in the position. Adams has a slim, outside chance of really putting himself in the picture with a good stint at Coventry. It did wonders for Jordan Henderson after all.
