Defender Blair Adams released by Sky Blues

DEFENDER Blair Adams has left the Sky Blues by mutal consent after agreeing to terminate his contract.

The 22-year-old has become the first major departure before the players return to pre-season training this Friday.

Adams made 64 appearances for the Sky Blues after originally signing on loan from Premier League side Sunderland in November 2012 before making the switch permanent in the January 2013 transfer window.

“This was a very difficult decision for me to make because Blair is a fantastic kid and his attitude and approach towards the game is first class” said manager Steven Pressley.

“I feel that some tactical adjustments will limit his first team opportunities and it is only fair that we give him the chance to seek regular football elsewhere.

“He has been a pleasure to work with and we wish him the very best of luck for the future.”

Elsewhere, club coach Ian Foster has also decided to leave the club by mutal consent after spending two years with the under-18s side.

The club have thanked Ian for his efforts with both the under-18s and, more recently, the development squad and have wished him all the very best in his future coaching career.
