Notts County will not allow left-back Blair Adams to extend his spell at Mansfield Town, Stags’ boss Adam Murray has revealed this evening.

Adams, 24, had previously stated a desire to prolong his stay at One Call Stadium following a three month loan spell.

Notts, his parent club, have made a U-turn on their initial decision to allow Adams to extend his spell at the Stags, Murray said.

“Blair’s loan finished yesterday, and despite being led to believe over the past couple of weeks that Blair would be able to extend his stay with us, unfortunately Notts County have now decided against this at the last minute,” Murray told www.mansfieldtown.net.

“As their (Notts County’s) player, they have every right to do this.

“I understand it has come about because of a mix-up in communication at their [Notts County’s] end, which led to their final decision to keep Blair Adams at Meadow Lane.

“We are obviously very disappointed as Blair was an outstanding performer for us, but like anything in this game, we will move on swiftly.

“This is another challenge which we have to overcome, but this won’t be a problem for us,” he added.
