Blair Adams

Adams joins Sky Blues

by Stuart Vose

Left-back makes League One switch.

Sunderland left-back Blair Adams has joined Coventry City on loan until January 5.

The 21-year-old will link up with Mark Robins' side immediately and is available for this afternoon's game against Hartlepool United.

Adams could face Sunderland colleague Ryan Noble at Victoria Park in John Hughes' first game in charge of Pools.

Coventry, who were relegated from the Npower Championship last term, are currently 20th in League One, one point and one place outside the relegation zone.

Adams is yet to make his competitive debut for Sunderland but was handed a squad number ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.

He has also had a loan spell at Brentford last season and spent the second half of the season at Northampton.
