Ebou Adams Joins On Loan

26 June 2017

Ebou Adams spoke of his desire to impress Paul Hurst after becoming Shrewsbury’s fifth summer signing.

The midfielder joins from Norwich on-loan until January, and he expressed his excitement at working for a manager that has taken a keen interest in him in the past.

“I’m pleased to be here, to sign for a club that are interested in me and I’m looking forward to going as far as possible.

“He called me a week after I finished off with Norwich for the summer, and I was pleased, I was so happy for him to have interest in me.

“He said he’s been watching me for quite a while, looking at how I play and how I can add to Shrewsbury and try to boost them into a better position.”

Hurst described the player as “tenacious”, something that Adams agreed with as he gave ShrewsWeb a clear indication of the sort of player the club have signed.

“I’m aggressive, I like to try and win the ball back as many times as I can.

“I call myself a box-to-box player so I like to defend but also to try and get into the box and get some goals.”

With Adams arriving in time for the start of pre-season training, the midfielder is looking forward to mixing with his teammates as well as preparing for the season ahead.

“It’s good to see how teams do their pre-season, I can take everything on and try to make myself a better player and a better athlete and look after myself a lot better.

“I think going to Portugal will be good for chemistry and it’ll be good for the lads to get to know eachother.”

He continued: “By playing against Championship clubs, you can see where you’re at, and with the non-league clubs it’s a good test because they will probably sit back and we’ll have a lot of the ball.

“I’ve got six weeks to impress the gaffer and show him what I can do so hopefully I can get a run in the team.”

Adams also expressed his delight at being at a club where young players can thrive.

“It’s a good place for young players, I’ve come to Shrewsbury and hopefully I’ll get a chance to experience first team football.

“It’s a different environment and a different league so I think it’ll be good to get my first team experience here.”
