Though Charlie Adam looked set for a move to Anfield, the £14 million dollar deal between Liverpool and Blackpool looks set to break down, with the latest reports out of England claiming the Tangerines' captain will stay at Bloomfield Road. Possibly ending one of the winter transfer window's most prolonged transfer sagas, Sky Sports is reporting that Adam will see out the season with Blackpool:
Charlie Adam to stay at Blackpool #transferdeadlineday
Liverpool and Aston Villa were the window's original suitors for Charlie Adam, with Tangerines manager Ian Holloway labeling initial, reportedly £4 million bids "derisory." Adam handed in a transfer request last week, seemingly intent on moving to Anfield, but Liverpool still failed to meet Blackpool's price. With Fernando Torres set for Chelsea and Liverpool apparently spending the money they're due, the Reds went in for Andy Carroll and Adam as the window began to close.
Early today came news that Blackpool and Liverpool had agreed to a £14 million dollar fee, with Adam set to undergo a medical ahead of negotiations for a deal at Anfield. Now just over an hour before the transfer window's set to close, the deal has reportedly broken down, sending Adam to finish the season at Bloomfield Road.
