Liverpool target Charlie Adam will leave Blackpool in the summer - at least that's the opinion of his teammate, Neal Eardley.

Adam’s protracted switch to Anfield was one of the longest running stories of the January transfer window and the Reds' had several bids reject for the 25-year-old.

According to The Guardian, the Adam was distraught after the Tangerines rebuffed an offer from Liverpool worth £10 million on transfer deadline day as they tried frantically to bring him to Anfield.

Liverpool initially tabled £4 million for the services of the Scotland international, who handed in a transfer request after learning of the interest from the Merseyside club.


But Blackpool - who paid £500,000 for Adam in 2009 - stood firm as Liverpool upped the ante; reportedly slapping a whopping £14 million price tag on their prized asset.

Blackpool boss, Ian Holloway, has since admitted it will be 'impossible' to keep hold of Adam in the summer, should Liverpool reignite their interest, and Seasiders' defender Eardley will hold no grudges should his skipper leave for Anfield.

"We have done well to keep him but I am sure Charlie will get his move in the summer or whenever because he is good enough to play for one of the big clubs," Eardley said.

"But for now he is still a Blackpool player and hopefully he can continue to play at his best between now and the end of the season."
