Career[edit]

Adams played two years in Kevin Ball's youth team and was called up to the first-team squad during his first season as a professional in 2010–11. Adams was given the squad number 34 during his first professional season and was the reserves' leading appearance-maker in 2010–11, playing 24 games.

On 8 September 2011, Adams moved to Brentford on loan until 7 December and on 5 October, he scored his first ever professional goal against Charlton Athletic in the Football League Trophy.[3][4] With seven appearance, Adams return to Sunderland from a loan spell.[5]

On 2 January 2012 Adams moved on loan to Northampton Town.[6] At the end of January, Adams loan spell at Northampton was extended by another month[7] His loan spells was soon extended twice, leading another one until the end of the season[8]

On 17 November 2012, he moved to Coventry City on loan.[9] On the same day, Adams made his debut, setting up a goal for Carl Baker, in a 5–0 win over Hartlepool United. On 8 December 2012, Adams scored an own goal but Coventry went on to win 5–1. This loan was made permanent on 17 January 2013.[10] Two days after making his move permanent, Adams played his first match in a 2–0 win over Oldham Athletic.

Adams and Coventry mutually parted ways at the end of the 2013-14 season, later signing with League One club Notts County.[11]
