Neil Redfearn takes summer Leeds United trialist Adam Drury on trial at Rotherham United

Neil Redfearn

The former Manchester City youngster is looking for a new club after leaving Bristol City.

Not many youngsters make it through the youth system into the first-team at Manchester City these days and one such player is Adam Drury.

The 22-year-old was released this summer after failing to make the progress expected of him at Eastlands.

The Grimsby lad, who can play at either right-wing or right-back, has been on loan at both Burton Albion and St Mirren in recent times but this summer had to find a new team.

One destination that did seem possible for a while was Leeds United. At the start of July he joined the Yorkshire club on trial. He spent two weeks at Thorp Arch, featuring in a friendly game against York City.

However, when Leeds jetted off for their pre-season escapades in Austria and Norway, Drury was not on the plane.

After his Leeds disappointment he went on to join Bradford and Blackpool for similar spells, scoring for both clubs. In the end he found a new club in Bristol Rovers but left the League Two club after less than a week in September, citing 'personal reasons'.

Now he has been given a chance to win another contract - after Neil Redfearn confirmed that the 22-year-old is on trial with The Millers, as reported by The Star.

Drury will now be hoping to win a contract with the Championship club and maybe even take on Leeds later in the season.
