Speaking about a potential move to the club, Adam said:

“We’ve been speaking for about a week now and I met James and John Nelms (managing director) the other day and had good discussions with them. The financial position of the club can’t be stretched and I obviously know there’s a wage budget so we’re trying to be creative.

“It’s my boyhood club, it’s where I’d like to play. I’d like to learn from a new manager and Gordon’s there as well – that’s enticing me. It’s going to take time. It’s still there, we’re talking and we’ll see how it goes.”

Adam, 34, was with Reading for a year after free transfer last summer. He joined the Royals from Stoke City and scored two goals and laid on four assists in 27 appearances across all competitions before his release earlier this summer.
