Stoke City has signed the former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam. The manager of Stoke City, Tony Pulis, has confirmed the signing of Adam.
However, Pulis didn’t disclose the transfer fee, but, according to the reports, Stoke has paid 4 million pounds for buying the Scotland international. Adam has joined the club on a contract of 4 years. Pulis said that Adam is a versatile midfielder and he is very happy to have bought him. Adam can be quite handy for the club in the ongoing season.
Adam had joined Liverpool in the last season. Liverpool had bought him from Blackpool after paying a contract fee of 6.75 million pounds. Adam played his first match for Liverpool against Sunderland at Anfield. His first goal for Liverpool was against Bolton Wanderers in a Premier League match. His performance was quite decent in the last season and he helped Liverpool win the Carling Cup after 6 years.
His performance was superb in the final of the Carling Cup. He managed to cement his place in the Liverpool’s first XI towards the end of the season. But, only after one season, Adam decided to leave the club which is a bit surprising. There have been reports that the new manager of Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers, had hinted Adam that he was not likely to get opportunities to play in the first XI.
After signing for Stoke, Adam said that he is delighted to have signed for Stoke. Stoke has performed well in the last few seasons and hopefully, he would help the club to do well in this season as well. The Scottish midfielder admitted that he was not likely to get first team chances at Liverpool which prompted him to make a move. Adam is supposed to make his debut for Stoke in the club’s next match against Wigan Athletic.
