Adams Jumping Up & Down To Leave?

Adams Jumping Up & Down To Leave?

Manager John Gregory has admitted that it was disappointing to see Nicky Adams, Emile Sinclair and Gary Alexander in the window, but in the case of Adams it was to the greater benefit of the club given how much he wanted to leave.

Speaking to the Crawley News Gregory again pointed to the months of rumours that had gone round about him being unable to settle in the area, and Gregory himself had spoken to the press earlier in the window admitting defeat when it came to keeping him, so again, although the move was disappointing because of how good a player he was, it was in everybodies best interests with him being out of contract in the summer.

'Nicky made it very clear that he wanted to leave and that he wasn't going to sign a new contract.'

Gregory goes on to say that he spoke to him on Thursday, and with Rotherham already having made an offer, Adams was clear he wanted to leave.

'He was jumping up and down wanting to leave, and if he doesn't want to stay, then we don't want a player who doesn't want to be here.'

With the Rotherham opportunity available to move on a player who wanted out, and for the club to secure a fee for him instead of losing him for nothing in the summer it's a double gain, as obviously now it's a wage freed up as well that can be reinvested elsewhere or saved in the bank until the summer.

Rotherham how however also denied that they paid a fee of £95,000 for the players.

As for Emile Sinclair, Gregory added that.

"Emile wasn't really featuring for us, and what we've done is basically rip up his contract. There is no chance he'll play for us again, he won't be back."

The gaffer continued to say that he didn't really want to accept the deal from Northampton Town because of how thin it left us playing squad wise, but it was ultimately a deal he couldn't spurn and a fee has been agreed for the striker, and we won't continue paying his wages whilst he's out on loan for the rest of this campaign.

With a few returning from injury, the gaffer is hoping he can now get some targets he's identified when the loan window opens again as he feels clubs will be more willing to let them go at this time of asking.
