Imps Move for Birmingham Midfielder shipping Ledsham to Telford.

Versatile Birmingham City midfielder Charlee Adams has returned to Lincoln on loan until January 1st 2015. He looks set to feature against Eastleigh with AFC Telford taking Karl Ledsham to balance the books.  Charlee gets the number  20 squad shirt.


Adams made his Blues first team début as a substitute at the St Andrews spiritual Blues home in the FA Cup Third Round win over Bristol Rovers last season. He then joined the Imps until the end of the seaon along with keeper Townsend who is currently warming the bench at Sincil Bank after featuring up until the FA Cup exit. Adams, a veritable wealth of nations  in Lincoln midfield terms, played 14 games during the spring of 2014 and became a cult hero with the faithful, filling in as a central defensive midfielder (CDM). Charlee can also play on the flank and in the middle in both the CDM and CAM positions.

Twenty’s plenty then for number 20 Adams who will be just 20 in January, but he has been unable to break into a struggling Blues side  racked by poor form and finances that almost make our lot look generous.  He is a confident lad solid, good distribution and positional sense who will act as a shield to a central defensive pairing that lacks pace. Birmingham do have an option to bring him back after the initial 28 day emergency youth loan expiry, however the chances are he could be ours until the end of the season.

Adams signed a one year deal last May with a further years option suggesting a loan will be as good as we get, unless Moyses wants to part with money during the winter window or in the summer. Charlee may not be the only new face at the Imps according to the grapevine, with rumours of a centre-back on the horizon too. This may have something to do with ends to the loan spells of both Audel and Sam-Yorke in January.  Indeed the summer will see a clean deck for the manager unless he wants to tie a few to contracts over the coming months.
