“Last game for Man City” – Relative of Etihad Stadium midfielder confirms exit in heartfelt social media post



| Last Updated:


Manchester City and Scotland youth international midfielder Josh Adam will be bringing an end to his four-year stay with the Premier League champions.

Originally signed from Scottish Premier League giants Celtic back in August 2020, Josh Adam became known within Manchester City’s Academy system for his ability to command play in tight areas and spot forward passes.

Having established himself as a regular feature for Scotland at youth level, Adam’s first season at the City Football Academy ended with silverware with the club’s Under-18s, having played 25 of Ben Wilkinson’s squad’s 27 games in the 2021/22 season.

Continuing his development within the academy system, Adam was promoted into Manchester City’s Elite Development squad, making 29 appearances under Brian Barry-Murphy and scoring four goals in the process.

However, as per a heartfelt social media post on X this week from the father of Josh Adam, the dynamic midfielder will be leaving Manchester City having spent the last four years of his career at the City Football Academy.

Allan Adam penned on social media platform X, “Good luck today son in your last game for Man City. Been a quick four years.”

Uncertainty swirled around Josh Adam’s future during the last summer transfer window too, despite the playmaker ultimately rejoining Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad for the ongoing 2023/24 campaign.

It was reported early on in the summer market that a French duo of Lorient and Lille, as well as Belgian giants Club Brugge, were all keen on signing the teenage prospect.

In fact, such was the interest in Josh Adam that during the January prior, it was reported by one newspaper that Lorient were ‘optimistic’ of finalising an agreement with Manchester City. For now, it remains to be seen what Adam’s next steps will be in football.
