Ebou Adams adds to midfield options
Paul Hurst’s first team squad continues to take shape as new loanee Ebou Adams joined the club for the first day of pre-season training on last Friday.
The Norwich midfielder joins Shrewsbury until January and the boss has told ShrewsWeb about the type of player that the club are getting.
He said: “I like him because he’s got that drive, you can see it in him, he’s stood out for me when I have seen him and he wants to fight and scrap, as well as play.
“He’s very tenacious, he puts his foot in, he gets up and down and he covers the pitch well.
“I like the fact that he’s a fighter and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Hurst believes that Adams will fit in well having joined from a club with a reputation such as the one that Norwich possess.
“I’ve been speaking with Neil Adams from Norwich and they’ve been very helpful, but now he’s got to look after himself and he’ll get the support from us.
“If you’re at Norwich then you’re not going to be poor on the ball but I think that is an area that they want to try and improve.”
The manager also spoke of his delight at reinforcements in the midfield area, and he will now be able to focus his attention elsewhere.
“That’s us sorted realistically in central midfield now, that’s one area I can relax on for a little while.”
