Adam Transfer Request Rejected

Adam Transfer Request Rejected

In a development to this afternoon's breaking news that Blackpool captain Charlie Adam has handed in a transfer request, 'Pool manager Ian Holloway has stated in a lengthy press conference that the request has been rejected and that the Seasiders will not sell the Scottish international midfielder unless the clubs pursuing him vastly improve their offers for the player.

Aston Villa, Birmingham and Liverpool have all had bids rejected for the player, but it was Liverpool's interest that sparked Adam's transfer request.

Holloway also stated that Adam will play against Manchester United tomorrow, although it will be interesting to see if he retains the captaincy.

Respect blackpool for being strong on the situation...Dont respect Holloway saying that villa have gone about the bid the wrong way when 'infact' all we did was tell your chairman we are interested and put a bid in but he had to embarrass himself and go to the media of his own back to bad mouth houllier and the club. It's clear he wants his name in the headlines and he does not care about adam or blackpool, just wants the media spotlight so he has to use other clubs bids and run to the media every time an offer comes in. Starting to get really embarrasing for the man now and i think charlie realises that.

Loyalty really doesnt exist in Football anymore. I thought Adam was going to stay until the end of the season. If Liverpool really wanted/needed him they'd stump up the cash in the summer, when you'd have to think £3-4m would be impossible for the Blackpool board and Olly to turn down. What could Olly do with £4.5m and having lost his key player at this stage in the season? Adam should have the sense to realise that if he stays and continues to play the way he has and help Blackpool stay up, with only 12 months left on his contract, every club after him now will still be sniffing around as well as a few more admirers.

your three points ahead of us and we will be level with you when we beat wigan tomorrow. i would bet ANY money that we will finish above you this season! if you look at the run in of games that we have they look very rosey. the point is that your best player wants to leave you and doesnt give a crap about you. and who says he doesnt want to come to villa? it may have been us that have been bidding more for all you no, bent handed in a transfer and it was all hush hush. maybe its the same here. saying all this i dont even want him, he gives the ball away in dangerous positions way too often and is hardly proven is he!
