Charlie Adam has said that he will look for a loan move in the January transfer window should he not get an increase in playing time in the coming weeks. Adam also revealed that he would prefer a loan move back to Scotland after having a good time reminiscing about the past with former Rangers teammates at Kris Boyd’s testimonial game.
Adam has made only three appearances, all from the bench under Gary Rowett. The Scottish midfielder has been told by Gary Rowett, he may leave the club and was not included in Stoke’s opening two matches, it is believed that Rangers were interested in bringing Adam back to Glasgow before eventually turning their interest elsewhere. At 32 years old, Adam is entering the final years of his career but still can be a useful player to have in the squad. In the recent loss to Birmingham City, once he came as a substitute he provided a spark for the team from midfield.
He recently came under fire after accusing some teammates of “getting away with murder” last season, those comments have been regarded by Stoke fans of damaging the club’s reputation and his feud with Xherdan Shaqiri was certainly fiery, to say the least, as the Scotsman accused the Swiss maestro of doing not enough last season, to which Shaqiri called Adam, “jealous”. It certainly is ironic for Adam to accuse Shaqiri of under-performing after missing a penalty in the final minute against Brighton and Hove Albion and getting sent off against Everton when Shaqiri was clearly one of Stoke’s shining stars last season as Liverpool swooped for him in the transfer window.
Charlie Adam in his Stoke City career has gifted many supporters wonderful memories, one would hope that he does not tarnish his reputation before a certain loan move out of Stoke City.
