A speedy full back who has the ability play either on the right or the left, Adam has quickly progressed from the Academy through the Reserves to become a useful member of the first team squad despite only recently having turned 18.
Having made his first appearance for the senior squad in their pre-season match against Accrington Stanley, Adam was then part of the first team squad that travelled to Hong Kong to play in the 2011 Barclays Asia Trophy.
Made his senior debut in the Premier League as a second half substitue against Wigan Athletic in November 2011, with his first senior start for the club coming a month later at Anfield as Rovers drew 1-1 with Liverpool on Boxing Day.
The same week saw Adam sign his first professional contract with the club. A two-and-a-half year deal until the summer of 2014. He would go onto make eight first team appearances in 2011-12.
After not being involved at the start of the 2012-13 season, the arrival of Henning Berg as manager has seen the young defender make the right-back position his own. Impressive displays saw Adam rewarded with a new contract that will see him at the club until the summer of 2017 with an option of a further year.
Despite his age, Adam has already represented Wales up to under 21 level and a first international cap is surely not too far off.
