Adam joins Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have completed the transfer of Charlie Adam from Blackpool after the midfielder signed a long-term contract.

The Scotland international underwent a medical at the club's Melwood training ground on Wednesday after the two clubs agreed a deal to end the Reds' six-month pursuit of the 25-year-old.

Just over 24 hours after that medical was completed the deal was eventually finalised with Liverpool confirming the move in a brief statement on their website. Adam told "I am absolutely delighted to be here."

He added: "It has been a long process but now I can't wait to get started and hopefully this will be a successful period in my career and in the club's history.

"Liverpool is a massive club with terrific players and a terrific manager.

"I see this as the perfect development for me to come here, play with such wonderful players and hopefully help the team to win trophies, because that's the most important thing.

"I'm delighted to be able to walk out on the same pitch as some of the players here.

"There are good players at the club, top, top players who I want to learn from. I want to become a better player and hopefully bring something to the team.

"Hopefully we can have a successful period because it's been missing now for a couple of years. At the end of the day you get judged on trophies and as a footballer you want to win as many as you can.

"This club has had a lot of success over the years, so let's get back to doing that."
