Three reasons Newcastle should sign unwanted Stoke midfielder Adam in January
According to reports in The Telegraph, Stoke City are ready to offload a number of players during the January transfer window, including midfielder Charlie Adam.
The former Liverpool mant has found first-team minutes hard to come with the Potters this season – playing just two minutes – and Mark Hughes is understood to be ready to cut another senior player from his squad, with Glen Johnson and Stephen Ireland also potentially on their way out.
The Telegraph says that the 31-year-old Scot, who is valued at £3.15m by transfermarkt.com, is thought to be on more than £40,000 per week, and he would likely have to take a pay cut should he join another club in the New Year.
Meanwhile, one point from the last 15 available in the Premier League have plunged Newcastle United towards the relegation zone following a decent start to the campaign, and Rafa Benitez will already be identifying players he could bring to St James’ Park when the window re-opens.
With Adam keen on the prospect of a transfer, the Magpies may be completing a shrewd move if they completed a deal for the midfielder.
