In the wake of Bassong's omission, Adams responded to questions regarding the former Tottenham centre-back's status at Carrow Road, insisting the 27-year old is still a required player.
"There's no agenda there," Adams said. "I've told Seb I'll need him - that might be in the next game or the game after, I don't know, but he is a big part of this team.
"Seb is a fantastic player - he knows he's the team captain and he still is, there's no issue there."
