Holloway patience wears thin

Published Add your comment

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway admits he has become bitterly frustrated by the ongoing transfer saga surrounding Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam.

The two clubs have agreed a £500,000 fee for the 23-year-old, who enjoyed a profitable loan spell at Bloomfield Road last season, but Holloway has yet to speak to the player.

"I've never known a situation like it. We have had a price agreed, but he and his agent have not come down to see us," Holloway told the Blackpool Gazette.

"I'm starting to think that is a bit rude, and maybe the writing is on the wall that he doesn't want to come, but at the minute it's sticking in my throat - I don't like that.

"What if he turns up tomorrow? Do I say: 'I don't want you?' I could put other irons in the fire, but on this one I want an answer yes or no and then move on."
