Oyston Confirms Adam Liverpool Talks

Oyston Confirms Adam Liverpool Talks

In an interview today with the Blackpool Gazette, BFC chairman Karl Oyston has confirmed that the Seasiders have held talks with Liverpool over the transfer of 'Pool skipper Charlie Adam, but that there is no concrete offer on the table at present.

Speculation over the Scottish international's future has been growing in recent days, with several online sources claiming that Liverpool are close to a £10 million deal for the midfielder, as Kenny Dalglish looks to rebuild his side in the first few weeks of the transfer window.

Liverpool were of course one of the clubs to bid for Charlie in January, offering in the region of £6 million it is believed.

Oyston said:

'We've had a few very preliminary discussions [with Liverpool] and enquiries but nothing of any substance so there really is nothing to report at this stage about interest from anyone.'

However, Oyston did admit that clubs talk to players before receiving permission from clubs - perhaps the reason why sources in Liverpool think that they're closer to a deal than they actually are:

'I'm sure that football clubs have talks with lots of players all summer that they probably shouldn't do.

'I'm sure that goes on. If January is anything to go by that is certainly the case.'

Oyston also used his interview to wish departing midfielder David Vaughan well for the future.

Vaughan has elected to leave Bloomfield Road on a free transfer after rejected a new contract offer from the Seasiders, stating his desire to remain in the Premier League - something that Oyston does not hold against him:

'Frankly he goes with my very best wishes and I can't help but hope he does well elsewhere, even though I wish he'd stayed.

'He has done very well for us and been a fantastic player for us while he was here and I fully understand that he sees his future in the Premier League and I don't blame him, so good luck to David.'
