Charlie Adam, earlier today had put in a written transfer request to leave Bloomfield Road in search of a bigger club but it was rejected out of hand by Blackpool hierarchy. The Scotland international is seemingly keen to move away from Blackpool with Liverpool leading the charge to sign the Scottish playmaker. 

It can already be seen that this is going to be an ongoing saga for the rest of this month's window. Holloway has said that he believes that Adam is good enough to play for one of the top clubs in the league, but that he should show some respect for the club that made him the player he is. Essentially Holloway has said he would allow Adam to leave in the summer after he helps the Tangerines survive in the Premier League, but may let him leave this month if their own valuation is met. 

Originally there was a £4 million bid rejected from Liverpool but it would seem now that if Liverpool were to up their bid for Adam then Blackpool may be forced to let their captain leave. 

Holloway revealed chairman Karl Oyston

 had taken a call from the Reds director of football strategy Damian Comolli on Sunday night, which left the situation more confusing if anything, 

"He ummed and aahed and apparently did not make much sense," said Holloway shortly after confirming that Adam would be playing against Manchester United on Tuesday. "If I tried to stop that boy playing against Manchester United he would probably kill me." 

This is definitely a transfer saga to be watched closely up until the final day, but it may be more a case of Adam staying until the summer if the Tangerines' valuation of the midfielder is not met this month.
