SUNDERLAND left-back Blair Adams was today set to join League One Brentford on an emergency loan.

The loan window for Football League clubs opened yesterday and the Bees have wasted no time in boosting their squad.

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is keen to give the club’s most promising youngsters experience of first-team football and Adams, who was an unused substitute on 10 occasions last season, will be sent out on loan for the first time in his career.

The England U20 international will follow in the footsteps of fellow Black Cats youngster Adam Reed, who spent time on loan at Griffin Park last season.
