Tony Adams is the gift that keeps on giving. The new Granada manager has confirmed that the La Liga strugglers will be offering deals to two former Premier League players.
It was reported last week that Nigel Reo-Coker and Kieran Richardson were on trial with the club and now the former Arsenal captain has confirmed they’ll get a chance to join permanently in the summer.
Reo-Coker had spells with Aston Villa and Bolton and captained England’s U21 side while Richardson played for Sunderland after leaving Manchester United.
“We will be offering them deals for next season,” Adams told Sky Sports.
“However, we have a cash flow situation at the moment that doesn’t allow us to bring them in.”
Remarkably, Granada only have nine permanent players on their books, with the remainder of their squad made up of loanees.
Adams is two for two in terms of losses as he looks to rescue a sinking ship. Granada are seven points from safety with six matches remaining.
Adams also confirmed that the club will appoint a new sporting director on Wednesday.
Tim Sherwood, anybody?
