Rotherham United’s latest signing Nicky Adams says that as soon as he knew he was coming to the New York Stadium he was ‘delighted’.

Speaking after signing a two-and-a-half-year deal the twenty-seven year old told MillersPlayer, ‘I heard late last night that a bid had been accepted by Crawley and I got here early this morning.

‘My last game for Crawley was here so I know how good this club is. It’s a huge club and I didn’t have to think twice about coming here and I’m excited to be here.

‘When I played here with Crawley I thought ‘I’d love to play here every week’. Now, thankfully, it’s happened. The way the clubs going I can’t see why they can’t get to the Championship.

‘Crawley’s a good club and I’ve had a great two seasons there and there was a great bunch of lads there. The fans were good to me and I really enjoyed my time there but it’s a new challenge for me now and I’ve come to a massive club that I couldn’t turn down. And I’m a Northern boy so it’s good to be back up North.’

Asked what he knew about Rotherham United, the Bolton born wide man said, ‘I know a few of the boys and I’m good friends with Claude. I know there’s some really good players here but I’ll be honest I don’t know too much about Rotherham but I did play at Millmoor but that was quite a long time ago. But you only have to look at the stadium and the facilities to know it’s a club on the up and the fans who turn up to the games are brilliant and I want to be a part of it.’

Nicky has played for the Welsh Under 21’s and said, ‘Hopefully coming to a big club like this might help me get into the Welsh first team squad.

Speaking about his new Manager Steve Evans, Nicky said, ‘I’ve a lot to thank him for because he was instrumental in getting me to Crawley even though he’d left by the time I went. And now he’s signed me here I’m hoping I can pay him back. I’m ready for the challenge and I’ve come here to get promoted.’

Nicky is available to play against Leyton Orient tomorrow a team he had a loan spell with four years ago when he was at Leicester. ‘It will be a good game,’ Nicky said.
