Ilkeston are quids in as Adams signs for Birmingham

Former Ilkeston Academy footballer Che Adams who signed for Sheffield United two years ago has now been bought by Birmingham City for a fee thought to be around £2 million.

This being the case, Ilkeston will receive £400,000, a 20 per cent share of the fee, as written into the deal at the time.

Ilkeston chief executive Nigel Harrop said: “This is massive for us.”
