New signing from Crawley Town Nicky Adams talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
New Rotherham United signing Nicky Adams says he is here to help the Millers achieve promotion.
The 27-year-old winger agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Millers this afternoon after an undisclosed fee was agreed with Crawley Town.
The former Leicester City, Rochdale and Bury wide-man expressed his delight at making the move, admitting that he believes that his new club has what it takes to achieve promotion to the Championship.
“From my experience of this league from my time at Crawley there is no team to be feared,” he told Millers Player.
“I have come to this club to get promoted, I’ve seen what the manager has brought here and I want to be part of that.
“My last game for Crawley was here against Rotherham and I could see how huge this club is, so to sign was a no-brainer, I didn’t have to think twice about it. I’ll be honest I didn’t sleep much last night because I am excited about moving here.
“You look around the stadium and you feel it is a Championship club. The way the team has been playing I don’t see why we can’t get there. It is a club that is really on the up, you only have to look around at the facilities and the number of fans that turn up to the games and it was something that I wanted to be a part of.”
It was a quick turnaround for the Bolton-born playmaker after he revealed he didn’t hear about a bid being accepted until late last night.
“I was at home late last night and had a phone call to say a bid had been accepted by the club,” added the former Wales under-21 international.
“Obviously I then quickly packed a bag and travelled up this morning and as soon as I knew that I would be signing here I was delighted.
“When I played here last week and couldn’t help think how good it would be to play here every week, it really is on another level, and thankfully it has happened.”
