Premier League boss plays down Liverpool rumours

Published Add your comment

Under threat of a mass exodus, Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is staying cool and insists Charlie Adam has no problems with the club in the wake of reported interest from Liverpool.

Adam is currently at odds with the Seasiders over unpaid bonuses and there are rumours he could leave the club in the summer – and goalkeeper Matt Gilks and midfielder David Vayghan have also been linked with big moves away.

Liverpool have admitted they will have to be sensible with their purchases from now on and Adam would be a cheap alternative to big names and has taken to the Premier League easily.

Roy Hodgson’s side have had a poor start to this season and currently languish in the relegation zone after nine games of the season and Liverpool have been plotting moves into the transfer market.

The likes of Mario Gomez and Oscar Cardozo have been linked and, with just one big money move available, the Anfield club will have to look for cheaper players as well to bolster their squad for a resurgence up the table.

The Blackpool gaffer said: “If he feels aggrieved then he's dealing with it in the right manner and it will get sorted one way or another. We'll see next week and then we'll move on from whatever the decision is.

"Charlie knows what I've been trying to do with him anyway is to make him worth a lot of money and then sell him to a much better club than us, because I believe he's good enough to play for a much better club than us.

"But we are now a much better club because of him and I think it's a joint thing,” he added.

Furthermore, Gilks has been rumoured to be on Arsene Wenger’s shopping list with Arsenal looking to bring in a back up stopper to the Emirates Stadium – and Gilks would be available on a free transfer if Arsenal were interested.
