Liverpool step up pursuit of Charlie Adam

Liverpool are expected to launch a fresh bid for Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam, with just three days left of January’s transfer window.

The Reds have already seen two failed bids for the Scottish international – a £4million bid last week, followed by a £6.5million bid on Thursday night.

Adam has signalled his intention to leave Bloomfield Road, and Liverpool are expected to up their offer one final time before Monday night’s transfer deadline.

This morning, Adam’s father, also called Charlie Adam launched an attack on the Tangerines for denying his son a way out of the club.

He said, “Blackpool are such a cheap-skate club.

“I don’t even think this is about money. It’s because Charlie took them to a tribunal over the bonus they owed him.

“This is their pay-back. They are saying ‘you won’t make anything out of this, we have got you under contract’.

“Liverpool’s offer is 13 times what Blackpool paid for Charles. And they are turning it down? They have been more than compensated for him already.

“Mr Oyston has got to realise it is somebody’s life and future that he is dealing with here. I think it is petty. This should be a time for common sense to prevail.”

Aston Villa and Birmingham City are also thought to be interested in signing the 25-year-old.
