Adam arrives at Anfield to bolster Liverpool

Liverpool FC have secured a second midfield recruit of the summer, Blackpool FC's PFA player of the year nominee Charlie Adam, who said: "I am absolutely delighted to be here."

Scottish international midfielder Charlie Adam has moved from Blackpool FC to Liverpool FC.

The Merseyside club have revealed no details of the fee paid for Adam or the contract terms of the player who was reportedly the subject of interest from Liverpool in January, having impressed in his debut season in the Premier League. The 25-year-old continued to catch the eye for the remainder of the campaign, earning a PFA player of the year nomination despite being unable to save Blackpool from relegation.

"I'm delighted to be able to walk out on the same pitch as some of the players here," said Adam. "There are good players at the club – top, top players who I want to learn from. I want to become a better player and hopefully bring something to the team."

Capped 11 times by Scotland, Adam started his career with Rangers FC, making 61 league appearances, before spending the last two and a half seasons at Blackpool. He becomes Anfield manager Kenny Dalglish's second midfield recruit of the summer after England Under-21 man Jordan Henderson, signed from Sunderland AFC for a fee in the region of €22m. Dalglish has also tied down one of his existing assets, with England full-back Glen Johnson the recipient of a new long-term contract.
