Holloway cut has no impact on Charlie Adam transfer

Ian Holloway has admitted he will take a cut of any fee that is agreed for the proposed sale of star player Charlie Adam.

The news was uncovered in a press conference that was once again dominated by the speculation linking Adam with a move away from Bloomfield road after he handed in a transfer request at the beginning of the week.

Liverpool are firm favourites to land the 25-year-old Scotland international, with the only stumbling block being that the two clubs are yet to agree on a fee.

Having offered an initial £4million to bring the creative midfielder to Anfield, Blackpool rejected the bid as they are holding out for closer to £12million, but Holloway is adamant that he isn’t trying to bump up the value for his own personal gain.


"I do get rewarded with anybody I coach and make a profit on,” he admitted.

“My chairman looked at my record of producing players and helping players and selling them on and he wanted that at Blackpool.

"I'm on a far bigger bonus to keep us in the Premier League and Charlie Adam can help me do that."

With time running out in the January transfer window, Liverpool messiah Kenny Dalglish will have to quickly determine just how badly he wants the services of Adam, to bolster his midfield options at Anfield.

Meanwhile, the Tangerine army will be more than happy if Monday passes with no news of a transfer for a player who has flourished since his move to the seaside town of Blackpool in August 2009.

Holloway added: "I bought a frustrated kid from Rangers, we bought him very wisely, and in 18 months we've gone from 16th in the Championship to 12th in the Premier League with his help."
