Stoke City Launch £5m Bid to Sign Liverpool Midfielder Charlie Adam

Britannia Stadium side keen on Anfield man.

Stoke City have made a £5m bid for Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam.

Manager Tony Pulis is hopeful a deal can be completed in the next 48 hours after the Scot was made available for transfer by Brendan Rodgers.

Adam, 26, had been keen to stay at Anfield to fight for his place but the Reds want to raise funds to bid for Fulham forward Clint Dempsey.


Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam may well feel he is not a prominent figure in Brendan Rodgers’ plans but will that mean the Scottish international would be keen to leave Anfield for Stoke City?

Many have given the impression that the 26 year old had a poor first season at Liverpool but the former Blackpool man did finish last season as the club’s leading assist maker though his goal return, just two, was perhaps someway off what the Merseyside club would have hoped for.

Adam cost Liverpool £9m and in many ways has proved a far better bit of business than the fees forked out for the likes of Stewart Downing, Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson but for some reason the central midfielder is the most likely of the quartet to be on his way this month.

Stoke City are not renowned for their midfield finesse and a player of Adam’s type doesn’t perhaps fit with the image one associates with the Britannia Stadium side but perhaps Tony Pulis is looking for more creativity in his midfield.

Will Rodgers accept a £5m bid? In today’s transfer market such a fee seems fairly low and with less than 48 hours left of the current transfer window such a sale may not give Brendan Rodgers enough time to bring in a possible addition if he feels such a deal necessary should he allow Charlie Adam to leave.
