Stoke City have signed Charlie Adam from Liverpool in a deal thought to be in the region of £4million as Brendan Rodgers continues his clear out at Anfield.
The former Blackpool midfielder only joined the Reds this time last year but as soon as Rodgers took charge this summer it seemed the Scotland internationals days were numbered.
Adam joins the likes of Jay Spearing and Andy Carroll out of the Anfield door during the past 24 hours as Rodgers stamps his authority on his underachieving squad, but Stoke will be delighted to have captured an experienced Premier League player.
“It’s no secret that we’ve been looking to bring more goals to the squad and Charlie is a fantastic signing in that respect,” said Stoke boss Tony Pulis.
“Not only will his creativity and his eye for delivering a pass be a great asset to us, he scored 12 goals for Blackpool in the Premier League two seasons ago.”
Adam added: “This club’s on the up and it’s great to be a part of it. I can do this club proud and I’m looking forward to the chance of playing in front of their passionate supporters.”
