There is news today that Blackpool have turned down a £2M bid from Birmingham City, for their talented captain, Charlie Adam.
Charlie Adam – has easily made step up to Premier League
We have no idea if Blackpool would be willing to sell their number one player, but if they do it could be dangerous for the seaside club, because things in the Blackpool side seem to revolve around Charlie.
But if Blackpool would be willing to sell him, then why wouldn’t Newcastle United be interested in this very creative Scottish midfielder, who has only just turned 25?
Birmingham are now expected to go in with an increased offer for the Scottish International, and we would hope Newcastle would be interested.
One thing that is missing from the Newcastle squad at the moment is creativity, and Charlie certainly provides that – plus he can put those crosses into the box, that big Andy Carroll can head home. We need more than just Joey Barton who has that specific skill.
Newcastle currently have Kevin Nolan, Joey Barton, and Dan Gosling as central attacking midfielders, and of course Dan hasn’t even played for the Magpies yet, but surely Adam would be an excellent buy, for say £3-£4M ?
Adam was previously at Glasgow Rangers where he played 80 times with 18 goals, and was on loan at St. Mirren (37 appearances with 9 goals) and also on loan at Ross County (15 appearances with 2 goals).
Charlie Adam joined the seaside club in early August of 2009, when he signed a two-year contract with the option of one further year, in a Blackpool club-record transfer fee of £500K from Rangers.
He has so far played 70 times for Blackpool with 23 goals, and has also played 6 times for Scotland, and he’s an excellent and creative player.
