Gaffer pleased to get his man...
Rotherham United manager Steve Evans is glad to have finally captured his man, with the signing of Crawley Town winger Nicky Adams on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
Adams, 27, starred for Crawley in their 2-2 draw at New York Stadium last week and the Millers boss described himself as ‘delighted’ with the coup, which appears to be the last business of the day.
“It’s fair to say we have been chasing two players for a week or so now,” Evans told www.themillers.co.uk. “Whilst our record breaking bid was accepted, the move didn’t come to fruition but I’m delighted to have young Nicky in.
“The supporters will have seen him last week when he put in a fantastic performance for Crawley Town, and I only met him for the first time this lunchtime. He was a player I was linked with signing for Crawley Town but I didn’t get the opportunity to see that move through and work with him at my previous club.”
Adams joins the Millers for an undisclosed fee and Evans believes he’s one to excite the fans from a number of attacking positions.
“Nicky can play on either wing or centrally behind the striker," added Evans. "He is very talented and enjoys taking on defenders for in tight situations. He’s committed, and for us it’s good to capture his signature after a move that goes back as far as last Summer.”
