Wages Not A Problem For Adam

Wages Not A Problem For Adam
The Rangers midfielder spent the last few months of the season on loan at Bloomfield Road and impressed with a number of match-winning performances.

Two special goals secured six valuable points for The Seasiders against Norwich City and bitter rivals Preston North End.

And that is why Ian Holloway wants to add the Scot to his squad, which at the moment is looking a little bare.

'I've seen a couple of DVDs of the lad and he looks a fantastic player that is very calm and calculated on the ball, so we will be trying to come to an agreement for his services.

'He's very good with the ball at his feet, attacking the opposition defence, so he would be a great addition,'
said the new gaffer, who is yet to make a signing so far.

But it is interesting to hear his comments on Adam's wages - which are believed to be in the region of seven thousand pounds a week.

'I don't think his wages will be a problem,' he continued. Obviously it is clear that 'Pool are now capable of offering bigger wages to players, and it was widely rumoured that Alan Gow was given the chance to become the highest paid player in Blackpool history before he turned the club down.

But now with the release of the likes of Marlon Broomes, Stuart Green and David Fox - all of whom were paid needlessly big wages for their respective roles - there will be more money in the pot for wages.

That, as stated, won't be the problem. A transfer fee, widely reported to be around 500k is something 'Pool want to negotiate.

'It all boils down to whether the chairman can come to a deal with Rangers for him,' claimed Holloway, who will be keen to add at least two central midfielders to his squad before August.
