18 year-old Ilkeston winger Che Adams has signed for Sheffield United, after a number of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle had registered an interest in the player.
Che Adams – signs on at Sheffield United
Che was signed for an undisclosed fee, and we suppose Newcastle just didn’t think it was worth taking a (small) chance on the forward, who has been in the goals this season.
For around £100K, we thought Newcastle had nothing to lose, but these types of young promising players are always available, and the key is to pick those that will come through big time, and that’s never easy.
Choosing those that will be ultimately be successful is a good measure of any scout.
Ilkeston manager Kevin Wilson seems to be glad all the hype is over and his 18 year-old protegé has finally moved on:
“It’s a relief that it has finally been sorted, because there’s no doubt that all the activity and speculation has been a disruptive influence around the place.
“But I’m absolutely delighted and we all wish him well in his future.”
Sheffield United are currently in the third tier of English football in Sky Bet League One, and are now managed by Nigel Clough.
They are in 5th place in the league table at the moment and in a play-off position.
