There is news today that Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam, who is 24 years-old, is interesting Newcastle United.
Charlie Adam – former Rangers midfielder
The 6’1″ Adam, who started his career with Glasgow Rangers, has been impressive this season at Blackpool, where he’s played 40 times with 15 goals – that’s almost as good a goals return as our own Kevin Nolan.
It’s fairly clear that Chris Hughton wants to bring in one central midfielder this summer, so we’ll be hearing about a few of them before anything really happens.
But from what we can tell, Charlie looks a really good player who can play central midfield or out on the left.
And the news is that Hughton has been impressed with the performances of Adam, who played 97 times for Rangers during 2006 and 3008, with 18 goals.
Charlie was out on short loan spells in Scotland to Ross County and St. Mirren between 2004 and 2006 where he played around 50 times with 11 goals.
Charlie played at Blackpool on loan from February, 2009, and then in August, 2009 signed a 2 year contract at Blackpool, for a record £500K transfer fee for the Seasiders.
He’s now played a total of 53 games for Blackpool, with 18 goals and has represented Scotland 4 times.
It also looks like Bolton Wanderers and Fulham are after the Dundee-born player, but if Newcastle really want him, we have to think we are a more attractive club for a Scot than those two.
And Charlie played the full game for Blackpool in their 4-1 loss, so he’ll knowall about the crowd and support on Tyneside, where 47,000 fans turned up for that game.
In his football career so far Charlie has played 191 first class games with 47 goals.
And from what we can tell, this lad looks like a good player.
