Agent: Adam wants Blackpool exit
Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam has handed in a transfer request, according to his agent.
The news comes after manager Ian Holloway revealed that three clubs had made unsuccessful bids for the player - Aston Villa, Birmingham and latterly Liverpool. Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston said they had rejected a £4million offer from Liverpool on Friday.
But Adam is now keen to move on and his agent Kenny Moyes told Press Association Sport: "I can confirm Charlie has handed in a transfer request."
Adam arrived at Bloomfield Road in January 2009 initially on loan from Rangers.
He sealed a permanent move that summer after Blackpool paid £500,000 for his services.
Adam responded with 19 goals as the club sealed a remarkable promotion to the Barclays Premier League through the play-offs.
He was back on target for the fourth time this season on Saturday when he scored from the penalty spot in the 2-1 defeat by Sunderland.
