Tony's two

Tony Adams set to make his first two signings after taking over at relegation-threatened Granada

The former Arsenal defender revealed his plans to sign free agents Kieran Richardson and Nigel Reo-Coker in the summer

Tony Adams suffered his second successive loss since taking over as Granada manager, but that hasn’t stopped him pressing ahead with transfer plans.

Adams’ side lost 2-0 to Sevilla, leaving them seven points off the safety of 17th place in La Liga with just five games left to play.

But, speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Adams revealed his plans to sign free agents Kieran Richardson and Nigel Reo-Coker in the summer.



Adams said: “They have both been brilliant and I would really like to take them and we will be offering them deals for next season.

“However, we have a cash flow situation at the moment that doesn’t allow us to bring them in.”

Granada’s attempts to register the pair were rejected as the club have outstanding financial issues.



Reo-Coker has been without a club since leaving MLS side Montreal Impact in January 2016.

The 32-year-old left England in 2013 following a spell with Ipswich, joining Vancouver Whitecaps and then Chivas USA.

Richardson, also 32, was released from his contract at Cardiff in December 2016.



After starting his career at Man United Richardson spent time at West Brom, Sunderland, Fulham and Aston Villa, while also picking up eight caps for England.

The pair will now have to wait to see what the future holds.

Adams only has a contract until the end of the seasons while Granada may well be playing their football in the second division next season.

So don’t book those intensive Spanish lessons just yet.
