Liverpool will complete the capture of Blackpool captain Charlie Adam this week, it has been claimed.

According to The Mirror, the 25-year-old has returned from holiday early in order to finalise a £9 million transfer to Merseyside, which could be confirmed before the weekend.

Adam had been desperate to force a move to Liverpool during the January transfer window after the Reds had tabled a formal offer, but the Anfield club were unable to reach Blackpool's demands.

However, after the Seasiders' relegation from the Barclays Premier League, they are resigned to losing their talisman, although they insist Adam can only join Liverpool if their £9 million valuation is met.


Should Adam finalise a switch to Anfield, the midfielder will become the second Liverpool signing of what is expected to be a busy summer for the Reds.

Jordan Henderson was acquired by Liverpool for £20 million from Sunderland last week, while they are also reported to be pursuing Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing.

The 26-year-old is said to be waiting to see who succeeds former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier at Villa Park before making a final decision on his future.
