Adams joins up with Notts County

Notts County have completed the signing of left-back Blair Adams on a two-year deal.

Adams joins Shaun Derry's team after turning down the offer of a new contract with the Magpies' League One rivals Coventry.

He has been brought in as a replacement for Alan Sheehan, who left Meadow Lane last month on a free transfer to sign for Bradford.

Adams passed his medical and joined his new team-mates for pre-season training at the Eagle Valley Stadium on Tuesday morning.

The 22-year-old came through the youth ranks at Sunderland, gaining experience on loan with Brentford, Northampton and Coventry. He then signed a permanent contract with the Sky Blues in the summer of 2012.

Adams becomes Derry's sixth new signing following the arrivals of Taylor McKenzie, Hayden Mullins, Alan Smith, Liam Noble and Nicky Wroe.
