Adkins on Bridge:

Listen, he got into the team of the year for the Championship last season. He’s played in the Premier League – you tell me how many games he’s played at the top level and internationally! He’s got a wealth of experience. I watched him last season, he brings an undoubted ability to the football pitch. We’re really pleased with the experience and the quality he’s got to add to the group.

Adkins on Drenthe

He has come in and you can see straight away – although he's only 26 years of age, he’s got a wealth of experience already. He’s going to be an entertaining character it’s fair to say. But do you know what? He’s got an undoubted ability. He’s come to join us and I’m looking forward to seeing if we can get the best out of him.

Adkins on Williams:

He’s settled in exceptionally well. He’s really bonded with all the players – it’s helped going away as a group. He’s settled in, communicated ever so well, trained well in every session. He’s an international player, he’s come in with the right mentality, he’s very athletic, I’m sure he’s going to add more strength to the midfield options we’ve got.
