Liverpool have confirmed the long-awaited arrival of Scottish international midfielder Charlie Adam.
The 25-year-old signs from Blackpool for an undislosed fee, but it is believed to be between £7m-£8million.
After a long-term persuit of Adam, which started in January’s transfer window after an impressive start to the season with the Tangerines, Damien Comolli and Kenny Dalglish have finally captured their man.
“I am absolutely delighted to be here,” Adam told the club’s official website
“It has been a long process but now I can’t wait to get started and hopefully this will be a successful period in my career and in the club’s history.”
He added: “Liverpool is a massive club with terrific players and a terrific manager.
“I see this as the perfect development for me to come here, play with such wonderful players and hopefully help the team to win trophies, because that’s the most important thing.
“I’m delighted to be able to walk out on the same pitch as some of the players here.
“There are good players at the club, top, top players who I want to learn from. I want to become a better player and hopefully bring something to the team.”
Adam will wear the number 26 shirt for Liverpool, the same number he wore as captain of Blackpool.
